[torqueusers] unable to submit script with resource requirement

I've a very simple setup, a Beowulf Cluster with 3 nodes; server client1 and
mpich user is mounted on client 1 and 2 using NFS and MPICH2 is installed in
mpich's home dir
Torque-2.4.3 is installed on this cluster with following configuration
for server
./configure --prefix=/opt/pbs --enable-mom --enable-server --enable-client
and for client
./configure --prefix=/opt/pbs --enable-mom --enable-client
after installing I've installed packeges
server mom and client --> server
mom and client --> client1 and 2
since my server is also a compute node so I've installed mom package on
and my default queue is
Qmgr: create queue batch
Qmgr: set server operators = root at server
Qmgr: set queue batch queue_type = Execution
Qmgr: set queue batch started = True
Qmgr: set queue batch enabled = True
Qmgr: set server default_queue = batch
Qmgr: set server scheduling = True

now the problem is job's with resource requirements can't run, if I type a

#PBS -N testJob
#PBS -l nodes=2:ppn=2
#PBS -l walltime=00:02:00
sleep 100
/home/mpich/mpich2-install/bin/mpirun -n 10 mpich2-1.0.8/examples/cpi

would not run but but if I ommit the line #PBS -l nodes=2:ppn=2 it would
run. Why is it that I can't submit resource requirements?
and following would run perfectly

#PBS -N testJob
#PBS -l walltime=00:02:00
sleep 100
/home/mpich/mpich2-install/bin/mpirun -n 10 mpich2-1.0.8/examples/cpi

[mpich at server ~]$ qsub jobScript.sh (I submitted a script with resource
but there was no output in home dir and
