Hello everyone, I'm new in the list so as a Torque user.
I have several issues with Torque. I've installed Torque on a Cluster that runs SL 6.3,
the pbs_server and pbs_mom seems to work fine, pbsnodes returns all nodes pretty well,
all of them are free; there's 6 nodes counting the head of the cluster.

But the issue i believe is with the pbs_sched. When I submit a job with qsub, it remains
stated 'Q', unless i force it to run with qrun. Another issue is that torque won't
respond after a while, if i try to get the status of the daemon (/etc/init.d/pbs_server
status) it doesn't responds, and thats for all commands qsub, qdel, qstat, pbsnodes, all
of them seems sleep. And a third issue is that when i force run a job for instance a
'Hello World' in C with MPI, the file .eXX shows me an error that says 'mpirun : command
not found'.

I've got an iptables firewall with the torque needed ports openned.
I'd be very thankful if someone helps me with one of these issues.

Here some info:
The errors throwed when i try qsub on a script and the pbs_server is sleep as i said
parse_daemon_response error 15085 Time out
parse_daemon_response error 15033 Batch protocol error
