Which version of Torque?

The pbs_server init script in 2.4.7 (which I looked at recently) has
an excess "fi" in it, where some shell scripting has been commented
out to avoid it accidentally re-initializing your scheduler.

Hmm. Recent Linuxes have some very odd network management tools,
designed to "manage" their wireless or other network connections, but
which interfer with server class environments. I wonder if your
hostname, DNS and networking is fully up and running at the point at
which the pbs_server init script starts?
