What scheduler are you using? We use a special node/queue attribute for
this which makes nodes accessible only from certain queues. Then you
just set the proper ACL on the queue and you are done.

This is used by sysadmins for maintenance mode.

Well, that means exactly what the error says. Only nodes specified in
the nodes file can connect to the server.
