Yes, I do have a scheduler (maui) running.  The problem reported only occurs 
on _some_ compute nodes.  I recently added 33 servers to the cluster I manage, 
18 of these will accept jobs, 15 won't and I'm trying to diagnose why.  All 
systems should be built to the same image (using XCAT).  The pbs_server/maui 
daemons run on a VM that has been handling jobs (various versions) for several 
years now.
