Thanks James for your expedient help!
I have until 10/1 to get this working
:0)
 
To answer your questions:
 
What does the error output say? ( Probably in file dn_test.txt.e[0-9]* )
Where would this output file exist?
 
Permissions on  /home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh , is it
executable? 
-rwxrwxr-x 1 zarnocda zarnocda 183 Sep 14 09:27 dn_test.sh
-rwxr-xr-x 1 zarnocda zarnocda  46 Sep 14 09:17 dn_test.txt
Located on the compute node:
/home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh
And
/home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.txt
 
I'll try your suggestion about interactive mode.
 
THANKS AGAIN!
Dave

Dave,
 
  Welcome to Torque. I switched from NQS some time ago, and Torque/PBS
has been a good replacement for me.
Things to check:
  What does the error output say? ( Probably in file dn_test.txt.e[0-9]*
)
  Permissions on  /home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh , is it
executable?  
You may need:    chmod u+x /home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh
 
  I'd also check if /home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh 
even exists on the compute node.
e.g.  ls /home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh  executable
 
  I usually use the interactive opion ( qsub -I ) to debug these kinds
of problems.
You could issue:
qsub -V -I  -l nodes=1 -q dn
which will start an interactive jobs and log you into the mother
superior node for that job
where you can then try issuing the commands within your job that is not
working.

Hello folks,
New to Torque, used to run NQS....
Concerning Torque...
I have a small script:
$ more dn_test.sh
#!/bin/sh
#
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/etc:/usr/sbin:/usr/ucb:$HOME/bin:/usr
/bin/X11
:/sbin:.
export PATH
DATE=`date +%H%M`
echo "Hello"
touch /tmp/dn_test_${DATE}
sleep 90
 
When I submit the script:
 
qsub -V -l nodes=1 -q dn dn_test.sh
 
It runs fine.
 
But I need to run batch...
 
I created a text file "dn_test.txt"
 
That contains:
 
/home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh
 
When I run:
 
qsub -V -l nodes=1 -q dn dn_test.txt
 
It appears to process the file:
qstat -s
Job id                    Name             User            Time Use S
Queue
------------------------- ---------------- --------------- -------- -
-----
7592.usphl1ora002.amer    dn_test.txt      zarnocda               0 R dn

 
But it doesn't excute the script within:
/home/zarnocda/torque/scripts_test/dn_test.sh
 
Any help!
 
Thanks!
 
Dave
