[torqueusers] Unexpected qsub error

Dear Torque users,

I had to powerdown my two servers for electrical maiteinance. When I
turned them on again, I found the following error when trying to submit

"qsub: Job exceeds queue resource limits"

But i'm asking for two processors where the machine has more than 10
processors free.

This never happened before, and I'm sure I didn't change anything from
the config files. Could someone please give me advice ?

The only thing I did was to qdel with "-p" option some jobs before
shutting the server down. Can this have affected ?

Thanks in advance.


The script I'm trying to submit :

#PBS -S /bin/tcsh
#PBS -m n
#PBS -j oe
#PBS -k oe
#PBS -l nodes=2
#PBS -M david
#PBS -q incal
#PBS -r n
# name
#PBS -N gli_g03-2
if ($?LD_LIBRARY_PATH) setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/soft/gaussian03
setenv g03root "/opt/soft/gaussian03"
setenv GAUSS_SCRDIR "/scratch"
source $g03root/g03/bsd/g03.login
setenv GAUSS_LFLAGS "-nodefile $PBS_NODEFILE"
