Hi,


This is with ref the reply below.  I deleted the files
from server_priv/jobs.  But the node on which the jobs
were running has completely crashed - doesnt even
reboot.  So, cant delete the files from mom_priv/jobs
on the corresponding node.  

Hence the jobs are still showing up in "qstat".  Any
suggestions ? 

TIA
