The manpage for version 17.02.9 of 'scontrol' says the following about
the argument for 'hold':
The job_list argument is a comma separated list of job IDs OR
"jobname=" with the job’s name
I am trying to put a number of jobs with the job name "g09" on hold.
However, I can't get the syntax right.
scontrol hold jobname=g09
scontrol hold jobname="g09"
scontrol hold "jobname=g09"
all give me the error:
Invalid job id specified for job jobname=g09
slurm_suspend error: Invalid job id specified
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
