Hi Sofia,
Yes, I think that the solution described at 
is correct for your case.  We have a similar situation where we need to 
group nodes according to which backend interconnect they use.  This 
solution does work, but you will need to make sure that the queu 
instances for each node are included in the two cluster queues that you 
created (one queue for each PE that you have).
