[torqueusers] Creating a queue for certain nodes

Dear all,


I tried to create a queue that puts the jobs only in the node 11

The extract from the command pbsnodes tells me that 

slavenode11
     state = free
     np = 8
     properties = big,8core,node11
     ntype = cluster
     status = opsys=linux,uname=Linux SLAVENODE11 2.6.5-7.244-smp #1 SMP Mon Dec 12 18:32:25 UTC 2005 x86_64,sessions=? 15201,nsessions=? 15201,nusers=0,idletime=7342331,totmem=12366300kb,availmem=12271880kb,physmem=8157292kb,ncpus=8,loadave=0.11,netload=64966591093066,state=free,jobs=? 15201,rectime=1224551444


so, it has been given a property     node11

then I created a queue


create queue node11
set queue node11 queue_type = Execution
set queue node11 resources_default.nodes = node11
set queue node11 resources_default.walltime = 24:00:00
set queue node11 max_user_run = 5
set queue node11 enabled = True
set queue node11 started = True


But when I submit a job with the script 


#!/bin/sh
###########################################################
#PBS -N TEST
#PBS -l walltime=100:00:00
#PBS -l nodes=1:ppn=4
############################################################
cd ${PBS_O_WORKDIR}
.
.


using the command


qsub -q node11 script.sh


the job would go to the fiorst available node on the list 

/server_priv/nodes

and NOT on the node11.

That differs to waht specified in the manual of Torque on section 4.1.4


Any suggestions to why it does not work ?


Thanks
