Dear All,

I am trying to set up a single ubuntu linux 12.04 machine that is running
torque.  All I want to do is be able to que jobs to run on that one
machine.  therefore it is supposed to be running pbs_mom and pbs_server.

I installed the following packages vi synaptic:

*I thought there was some confusion in the hostsnames and I ended up
changing things around.... now nothing is working.*
*I think I have really messed things up and I can't seem to fix it.  here
is what i have in the following files:*


/etc/hosts     jonathan-M-601A.local jonathan-M-601A       localhost.localdomain localhost


$pbsserver jonathan-M-601A
$usecp jonathan-M-601A:/home /home

jonathan-M-601A np=4

*if I try *
echo "sleep 30" | qsub
qsub: Bad UID for job execution MSG=ruserok failed validating
jonathan/jonathan from jonathan-M-601A.local

*If I try to add myself as a manager or operator, I get *
 qmgr -c "set server operators += jonathan at jonathan-M-601A"
qmgr obj= svr=default: Bad ACL entry in host list MSG=First bad host:

*the following command give:*
 qmgr -c 'p s'
# Create queues and set their attributes.
# Create and define queue batch
create queue batch
set queue batch queue_type = Execution
set queue batch resources_default.nodes = 1
set queue batch resources_default.walltime = 01:00:00
set queue batch enabled = True
set queue batch started = True
# Set server attributes.
set server scheduling = True
set server acl_hosts = jonathan-M-601A
set server acl_hosts += localhost
set server default_queue = batch
set server log_events = 511
set server mail_from = adm
set server scheduler_iteration = 600
set server node_check_rate = 150
set server tcp_timeout = 6
set server allow_node_submit = True
set server next_job_number = 12
