In my experience, it may say that even if it has nothing to do with the reason the job isn’t running, if there are nodes on the system that aren’t available.

I assume you’ve checked for reservations?

I have spent the majority of my day investigating this, but haven't turned up anything meaningful. Both jobs show the "ReqNodeNotAvail" reason, but none of the nodes listed at not available are even in the partition these jobs are submitted to. Neither job has requested a specific node, either.
