[torqueusers] I get 'Unauthorized Request' to every qmgr command

The $PBS_HOME/server_name needs to be the same name as that associated with your primary interface.  This is usually the name associated with eth0 on multi-homed systems but not necessarily.  If you are running a peer-to-peer cluster, that is, all nodes have a single connection to a common network, this would be the case.  If you are running a beowulf cluster with a public and private network, then the name in the server_name file should match that name via DNS or /etc/hosts that matches the "public" interface.

I use 3 interfaces.  One for the private network (eth0), one for the public network (eth1), and one for HA (eth2).  The name I have to compile torque with is that associated with eth1.  This will place in the "server_name" file the correct name.

Hope this clarifies things.

server_name is correct, but the culprit is /etc/hosts. This machine
has multiple network interfaces and the wrong one was listed
first. So, for the record, server_name must match the first
no-localhost name in /etc/hosts, I guess, or disaster will ensue. Is
that right? On this machine, there are 3 network interfaces, and the
order of eth0 eth1 eth2 does not seem to matter, but only the order in
