[torqueusers] Post job file processing error

	You need to make sure that you can ssh/scp without a password between  
the server and the nodes. Depending on how you have things configured  
you may need to make sure that you do it with short name and/or FQDN.  
You should be able to try a copy by hand using the error you posted.  
Go to ciarlab14.cluster.net and try to copy the file from   /var/spool/ 
torque/spool/32.ciarlab11.cluster.net.OU to ciarlab11.cluster.net:/usr/ 
local/out. I'm also guessing that your using NFS partitions so be sure  
that you can write to those partitions on the nodes. You might need to  
utilize the mom directive usecp. From the Torque admin guide:

$usecp  	<HOST>:<SRCDIR> <DSTDIR>  	Specifies which directories should  
be staged (see TORQUE Data Management)  	$usecp *.fte.com:/data /usr/ 

Also, you state your nodes are node0-node5 but the error message says  
ciarlab11.cluster.net and ciarlab14.cluster.net so that is a little  
bit confusing. I know this has been covered on the list before so  
searching the archives might give you some more answers to this type  
of problem. I hope this helps.
