If fixing the serverdb file in server_priv does not correct the problem then the next step might be to get even more information by setting the log level to 7 on the server and the mom to see if it tells us more. The tdelete function reports information at log level 6.

Hi Dimitris

That is expected.
The old database is gone, and with it the job counter.
Likewise for any pending and running jobs.
You may need to kill the leftover processes on the nodes by hand.
I recreated the database a few times here, after the whole Torque+Maui
was working, just to start the job counter fresh.

Not sure if the old mom, server, and scheduler and logs
are preserved, though, but they may.
