[torqueusers] switching pbs_sched to maui while in production?

Hi all,

I foresee the need to switch to maui in the near future, as pbs_sched is reaching the limits of its usefulness.  Our small cluster usually doesn’t have a queue on it unless things are very busy (i.e. jobs start running straight away).  Would it be possible to switch from pbs_sched to maui while in production, or would I need to clear the cluster of jobs first?  If it is possible, am I best to wait for a time when there are no jobs queuing (but probably a few running)?

The cluster is currently down for other reasons.  I’m wondering if I need to rush through a maui installation and try to get it working now, or am I OK to wait a while and test it over the coming few days.  I really only have about 2 hours to get it up and running now, so I’d rather wait and test.
