Qsub -I no longer works

I can submit a job using a script, but if I try and run an interactive job, it just hangs. The system is free, no other jobs are running, so it is not a matter of resources. Just hangs and never produces a prompt. What should I check for? Thanks.

Please check:

  1. DNS issues (forward and reverse address resolution)
  2. firewall
  3. SELinux

Please browse this discussion: Interactive Job errors out with 'apparently deleted'

Well, a co-worker discovered the problem and offlined compute-0-0. Doesn’t explain why we could submit a job and it would run, but not perform an interactive job. Thanks.

I am experiencing interactive job submission.

qsub -I

Submit the jobs, then deletes it. Everything was working until a power failure Friday.
We brought everything back up. I can submit a batch job, but not an interactive job.

I also found this in the server log, I removed the ip info:

req_reject;Reject reply code=15139, aux=0, type=8,

Please check

  1. Firewall
  2. Please check DNS for forward and reverse address resolution
  3. Please check this debug method

  4. Use the full path of the qsub , if in case you have multiple WLM’s
    /opt/pbs/bin/qsub -I (capital I for ice )
  5. Share the tracejob of the interactive job id
