I've run into the dreaded:
$ qconf -de MYHOST
Host object "MYHOST" is still referenced in cluster queue "AGGRO".
It's no longer actually referenced in the queue and the hostgroup
@AGGRO which defines the hosts for the Qs no longer contains it.
ie 'qconf -shgrp @AGGRO | grep MYHOST' returns nothing

show up in a 'qstat'.
the only place where it still shows up in in the qmon window:
[qmon -> Cluster Queue Control -> Hosts] where the hosts are listed

but fails to provide an example (because Chuck Norris don't need no
And the qconf man page is similarly laconic in in its dearth of
I thought that you would use it like:
qconf -purge queue '*' AGGRO at MYHOST
but that returns:
Attribute name ("*") and/or value ("MYHOST") not found
