See http://www.nw-grid.ac.uk/LivScripts for a simple script
(disable-nodes) which does that, and the reverse.  However, you might
find it better to restrict the nodes to a specific ACL to allow testing
them (e.g. sge-restrict-nodes from the same page); we'll often have such
nodes running HPL to see if they stand up.  Note those scripts use node
numbers, and work cross-cluster, courtesy of genders.  (I think there
are similar things by other people lying around, but those are the ones
I can point to.)
