We do not use moab. We do queue/node match with torque.
Can't you add extra property to nodes?

we have some special nodes that have that "extra property":

$ pbsnodes node1.pic.es
     state = free
     np = 8
     properties = slc5_x64

$ pbsnodes node2.pic.es
     state = free
     np = 8
     properties = slc5_x64,sgm

so, you could create a queue that request that new property:

# qmgr -c "l q sgm"
Queue sgm
resources_default.neednodes = sgm

and the normal queue:

# qmgr -c "l q normal"
Queue normal
resources_default.neednodes = slc5_x64

so node2 can run jobs from normal queueu and from queue sgm and node1
only from queue normal.... isn't it what are you try to confgiure?
