Is there a resource manager type for CCS? Must I have then a CCS Server
in order to run a job on a Windows node? I don't see one documented here:
But what about just straight clients? Lets say I'm running a Linux
cluster, and sometimes, I need to boot Windows in a Virtual Machine on a
compute node. Say that node runs XP, or even 2000, then can Moab not
schedule a job on that VM unless the node is running CCS?
