Subject: Re: [OMPI users] restricting a job to a set of hosts
From: Erik Nelson (nelsonerikd_at_[hidden])

Reuti,

Thank you. Our queue is backed up, so it will take a little while before I
can try this.

I assume that by specifying the nodes this way, I don't need (and it would
confuse
the system) to add -nolocal. In other words, qsub will try to put the
parent node
somewhere in this set.

Is this the idea?

Erik
