[torqueusers] assigning specific nodes to queues

i saw in the archives that this has been asked before, but i didn't see that there was ever resolution, so i apologize in advance for asking again if there was an i missed it.
i am trying to define a queue named "test," and have two nodes specifically assigned to it.  
the test queue is defined as such:

create queue test
set queue test queue_type = Execution
set queue test acl_host_enable = False
set queue test acl_hosts = compute-12-13.hpcc.local
set queue test acl_hosts += compute-12-12.hpcc.local
set queue test resources_max.cput = 01:00:00
set queue test resources_max.ncpus = 16
set queue test resources_max.nodect = 2
set queue test resources_max.walltime = 01:00:00
set queue test resources_min.cput = 00:00:01
set queue test resources_min.ncpus = 1
set queue test resources_min.nodect = 1
set queue test resources_min.walltime = 00:00:01
set queue test resources_default.cput = 00:30:00
set queue test resources_default.ncpus = 1
set queue test resources_default.nodect = 1
set queue test resources_default.walltime = 00:30:00
set queue test resources_available.nodect = 2
set queue test enabled = True
set queue test started = True


however, when i try to run a job in this queue (in my job script, i specify "#PBS -q test"), it not running on either of these two nodes.  i have tried changing the attributes of these two nodes in the nodes file to be of the form "compute-12-12.hpcc.local np=8 test" but that didn't help, either.  


i am running a slightly older version, 2.1.8, but that cannot be helped for the time being, and there was nothing in the documentation i saw that said this was specific to certain versions.  


did i miss something?
