We don't use R* commands.  Instead, we use ssh and friends.  I really would
prefer not to have to modify the system settings.

What command takes a submit_hosts option?  All hosts are in
server_priv/nodes though they are listed with a domain,
e.g. "udesktop116.wacker" instead of just "udesktop116".  The hostname
command returns just "udesktop116".

I added

    set server allow_node_submit = True

in qmgr.  Should that not work?

Maybe given the distinction between "udesktop116" and "udesktop116.wacker" I
need to explicitly allow submission from the former?  I tried that.  Now
submission from other hosts (both by user marc and user skipm) works.

Now, I manually executed the following commands in qmgr:

    set server submit_hosts = udesktop116
    set server submit_hosts += udesktop138

Are those settings "sticky" across restarts of pbs_server?
