This error makes sense, if some other user was consuming slots or the  
load alarm thresholds had been reached on all nodes.

How about "qstat -f -u '*'" ?

By default 6.2 only shows qstat data for the user running the command,  
try with "-u '*'" and you may see other jobs that are consuming slots  
- perhaps someone else was active at the time your test job was  
supposed to run?
