I actually didn't use the PE. I just use an array job and used "qconf -me <hostname>" to edit the number of slots in the execution host. Works like a charm (but maybe it's really not-done, hack-ish, and whatnot ;))

With kind regards,

So I should create a new PE for this purpose? I also want the slots to
be on the same machine. How do I manage this?
