As far as I know, the generic resources are not supported in Maui.
They are supported in Moab, though.

As a simpler substitution you may set "licens" as a property for one
or several nodes in the pbs_server nodes file or through qmgr, e.g.

	set node n5 properties += licens

and demand it with e.g.

#PBS -l nodes=1:licens

This is supported in Maui.
