I posted a problem a week ago, but I have solved it already.
The cause of this problem - I made rpm and used install torque using 
them. When I installed from source (make, make install), the things 
started to work well.

Below is description of my problem. May be it helps someone.

Best regards,


I have installed torque 2.3.7 on OpenSUSE 11.1 x86 (I want to use it 
with OpenMPI). I have one pbs server (comp24) and several nodes 
(comp2-23), scheduling is pbs_sched.
All looks fine except one problem:

This is my job file is:

#PBS -j oe
#PBS -o test.log
#PBS -l nodes=8

sleep 10
echo `cat $PBS_NODEFILE`

The result of this job is:


qstat -f:

     Resource_List.neednodes = 8
     Resource_List.nodect = 8
     Resource_List.nodes = 8

pbsnodes says that state is job-exclusive only for one node 'comp2'.
All other nodes is free.

Why it give me only one node when I requested 8?
What I should do to get all 8 nodes?
