I am trying to set up a node allocation scheme depending on network 
layout, following this thread: 

I can't get it to work even though I have the same configuration as far 
as I can see. I am not using the same version of Grid Engine though, I 
am using GE 6.1u4.

My cluster basically consists of a few blade enclosures and I want it to 
be possible to ask for cores in one enclosure, so that you can utilize 
the better banwidth within the enclosure. My plan is to set up all 
enclosures with one hostgroup, one queue, and one pe each, like in the 

When I run a job like this:
$ qsub -pe "test*" 1 ./testSub.sh
I get the error:
cannot run in PE "test_1" because it only offers 0 slots
cannot run in PE "test_2" because it only offers 0 slots

My first question is, is it still possible to configure this (in my 
version and in 6.2)?
My second question is, for my problem, is this the right solution?
