Dear Users,

I have several questions.
I want to use my machine as a node machine as well as a master one.
( I have only one computer )
First, I compiled "torque-2.0.0p11.tar" following the manual, and then I 
compiled files for a node using "make packages" at the same 

I tested PBS using 'echo "sleep 30" | qsub' command, and I noticed that 
submitting was OK. However, It was always 'S' state! ( It wasn't 

Because I want to use two CPUs, I typed 'echo "sleep 30" | qsub -l 
nodes=2'. Then following messages occured, "qsub : Job exceeds queue 
resource limits".

So my questions are
(1) I want to run my execution command.
(2) I want to run my command using two CPUs.

My configuration files are

# Create queues and set their attributes.
# Create and define queue workq #
create queue workq
set queue workq queue_type = Execution 
set queue workq enabled = True
set queue workq started = True
set queue workq max_running = 2
set queue workq resources_max.nodect=2
set queue workq resources_default.nodes = 1
# Set server attributes.
set server scheduling = True
set server default_queue = workq
set server log_events = 511
set server mail_from = adm
set server query_other_jobs = True
set server scheduler_iteration = 600
# Create nodes
create node <myhost>

<myhost> np=2

Thank you.

Sincerely, Min.
