Not that it's necessarily what you'd want to do (especially given your
large-cluster avoiding-ping concerns and maybe iffy effect on running 
jobs, though jobs on nodes I tested on weren't interrupted): 
but if you "pbsnodes -r" on the old nodes to force them state=down, 
do they then get the updated node list and do something useful with
it when they're noticed to be "back" online by the server?
