It is still in /etc/hosts but is physically not existant anymore. I can't 
delete it from the host group. I get the error from above.

No, not really at all. But I would like to first fill all nodes with jobs, 
and at last use the head node.
I solved it now, with adding a second queue with only the head node in it, 
and using a larger sequence number than the other queue.
