Hi all!

Is anybody out there who can explain this?
<citing_the_manual>
runjob

-n <NODELIST> 	Attempt to start the job using the specified
nodelist where nodenames are comma or colon delimited
</citing_the_manual>

[root at torque ~]# runjob -x -n node101 90558
ERROR:    'runjob' failed
ERROR:  incorrect number of procs in hostlist.
(8 requested  1 specified)
OK

[root at torque ~]# runjob -x -n node099,node101 90558
ERROR:    'runjob' failed
ERROR:  incorrect number of procs in hostlist.
(8 requested  2 specified)
OK

[root at torque ~]# runjob -x -n node098,node099,node101 90558
ERROR:    'runjob' failed
ERROR:  cannot locate node 'node099,node101' in
specified nodelist
??????????????????

installed: glite torque metapackage: torque-2.1.9-4cri.slc4

Moreover, is ist possible to specify certain CPUs
to run the job on ?

I also did not find reasonable examples for this option.
Any hint is appreciated. 

Greetings and thanks in advance
