This is one option, besides my initial suggestion to submit with a hard node request.

What I completely overlooked was, that you request a PE which isn't necessary at all. The PE would be applied to each of the array tasks, and so you could submit an array where each task needs four or whatever cores - so leave it out in your case (you are requesting only one slot four each of it).

But you can use this to submit an advance reservation with an attached PE which you already have with "allocation_rule $pe_slots". Into this granted AR you submit the job array then.
