[GE users] Advanced Reservation question

I'm just trying out reservations for the first time.

GE 6.2u5

I'm having trouble creating an advanced reservation for a user requesting 8 nodes with 8 slots each: 

$ qrsub -q '*@compute-0-1,*@compute-0-10,*@compute-0-12,*@compute-0-4,*@compute-0-6,*@compute-0-8,*@compute-0-9,*@compute-1-8' -u jdoe,mikeh -a 201003120100 -e 201003211200 -m bea -M mhanby at uab.edu -N Brain01

Your advance reservation 5 has been granted

These are 8 nodes that are currently running jobs, but will be open by the time the reservation starts

$ qrstat -ar 5
id                             5
name                           Brain01
owner                          mikeh
state                          W
start_time                     03/12/2010 01:00:00
end_time                       03/21/2010 12:00:00
duration                       226:00:00
submission_time                03/11/2010 16:53:14
group                          sge
account                        sge
granted_slots_list             all.q at compute-0-8.local=1
mail_options                   abe
mail_list                      root at localhost
acl_list                       jdoe,mikeh

The output seems to indicate that the reservation is only being created for one host and a single slot, instead of 8 hosts each with 8 slots.

Do I have the syntax wrong for GE6.2u5?

Also, is there a way to modify an existing AR? I don't see a 'qrmod' command.
