Hi George,

No, pbs_server is not running on the working nodes.  I only have the
pbs_server on the head node which is neut00.
So when I tried qmgr -c 'print server', the following is the output:
[root at neut00 pbs]# qmgr -c 'print server'
No Permission.
qmgr: cannot connect to server

But then I tried it on a working node, the following is the output:
[kandy at neut07 pbs]$ qmgr -c 'print server'
# Set server attributes.
set server log_events = 511
set server mail_from = adm
set server scheduler_iteration = 600
set server node_check_rate = 150
set server tcp_timeout = 6
set server pbs_version = 2.1.9

But I couldn't set new configuration on the working node as it said:
qmgr obj= svr=default: Unauthorized Request
