We have a user who is running the maximum number of jobs we allow a user to run concurrently and he has 500 jobs in qw state.

His qlogin jobs is one of them

I typed qalter -p 512 jid

and the priority of the qlogin job did not change. It was zero before and after the qalter.

How do we increase the priority of the queued qlogin job so that it runs before any other job the user has queued will run when the first running job completes.?

This is on ge 6.2u5 running on solaris 10 update 8.
