Alfonso,  the way I would do this is to put all the users jobs on hold, using  scontrol hold
Then change the limits , then release the job you want to run.

this is probably not the smartest way to achieve this.

I've a list of users. One of them, has multiple jobs, some running, some waiting due his limits. He asks me if I can put one of these waiting jobs in running (I have free resources).
How I can put a job running, and only a specific job? If I give him more resources, may be can run other of his waiting job, and not the job he wants run.

I tried putting the priority in "99999" whith "scontrol update jobid=XXXXXXX pritory=99999" and updating his limits. But when I apply the new limits other job is running and not the job he wants and that I have modified the priority.

Any idea?
