[GE users] Configuring Exclusive scheduling

I just updated to 6.2u3 in order to use exclusive scheduling. I'm
following the instructions for setting up exclusive scheduling found here:


After creating the complex "exclusive" with the command 'qconf -mc', I
get this error:

error: each value in the attribute value list in line 7 should end with
error reading in file

Has anyone else encountered this?

I'm doubting the complex configuration given on this page, too. It says
it should be this (please excuse the linewrapping):

#name          shortcut     type         relop  requestable  consumable
default  urgency
exclusive      excl         BOOL         EXCL   YES          YES
  0        1000

I tried using QMON to define this, too, but there is no relop "EXCL",
and given that that the type is "BOOL", shouldn't the relop be == or !=?
