The range is meant to be per node/execd, however, having had a quick 
look at the source code, it may actually be per cluster. Perhaps someone

If you are able to extend the range, then it may well be worth a shot. 
It should take effect immediately.

BTW, you don't have loads of suspended jobs on the node, do you?
