[torqueusers] short jobs to "interactive" queue not running

torque 2.1.1     maui 3.2.6p16

We have a 12-node cluster and would like short jobs to "jump in",
run briefly on the number of nodes requested, and then exit.

If a job already has 12-nodes allocated, but that queue has a lower
priority (10) than the interactive queue (100), should a job to the
interactive queue be able to allocate those nodes for a short
period of time?

Below is how the queues interactive and opt8 are set up.
When a job is running on opt8, a node will list as "job-exclusive".
Does the node need to be set to "time-share" ??

Thanks in advance < A
