[torqueusers] qsub: Bad UID for job execution

I'm trying to setup TORQUE 2.1.8 and every time I try to submit a job 
from the pbs_server node I keep getting this error: "qsub: Bad UID for 
job execution". There's no log entry in the server_logs when the error 

I'm not using root to submit the job and the user is shared among 
all the cluster nodes. When I execute `id siturria` I get the same UID 
on all the nodes:

[siturria at node02 hola_mundo]$ id siturria
uid=524(siturria) gid=501(clusterusers) groups=501(clusterusers),515

The pbs_server node has two network interfaces (and two names): 
cluster.fing.edu.uy ( and node01.cluster.fing 
( The pbs_server is configured to run with the hostname 

Here's my pbs_server configuration (I modified a couple of 
things trying to identify the problem so there's unnecesary stuff 
in the configuration):
