Hello all,

I can see a strange behavior when setting a consumable resource (actually a counter for floating licenses as suggested in the howtos) for the global execution host.

qconf ?sc gives:

#name shortcut type relop requestable consumable default urgency
f_cfx_jl fcfxjl INT <= YES JOB 5 0

and qconf ?sc global gives: complex_values f_cfx_jl=5

For debugging purposes I have launched 10 jobs that contain only a sleep command. Each of these jobs requires a license with the option ?l f_cfx_jl=1

But after launching the 10 jobs, all are running, and qhost ?F f_cfx_jl returns a negative value for the consumable resource:

global - - - - - - -
Host Resource(s): gc:f_cfx_jl=-5.000000

Obviously this is not the behavior I am looking for. After a search in the mailing list I have seen that this problem could be related with the issue 2901. But it is written that the problem has been solved since 6.2u3 release and we use the 6.2u5. So am I doing something wrong, or the bug is still here?

Thank you in advance,
Best regards
