Dear list,

we are currently extending our grid to have additional nodes. Those 
should be added to a new queue, thus resulting in two: the "old" queue 
for the old nodes, and the "new" queue for the new nodes. Both queues 
will last "forever".

As both queues are configured (severely) different (e.g. resource 
limits), to help our users migrating to the "new" environment, we would 
like to achieve the following:

By default, the old queue is used. Always. (If no -q parameter is passed 
to qsub)

If desired, the users can change this behaviour by manually specifying 
the queue (to change over to the new queue).

I am sure that this should be implementable. However, the sequence 
number does not really help, as the queue will still be used, if the 
"default one" is filled up.

Any ideas or hints? I am sure to have read sth. about it, but can't 
recall, where.

Thanks & Best,
