Hi Soeren,

you can define the sequence nr in a queue for every queue instance like this:

qconf -sq all.q
seq_no                0,[brag=1]

this means on host brag the seq_no is 1

You can verify this by

 > qconf -sq all.q at brag | grep seq_no
seq_no                1

For A.q I'd like to fill slots from "h1" to "h10", for B.q I'd like to fill slots from "h10" to "h1". As far as I can see it is not possible to aply a host order anyhow or two different host orders for different queues.
