Hi Mike,

We just ended up using two reservations; one for Monday, one for Tuesday.

We have a request to create a 2 node reservation for a class that will meet every Tues and Thus this semester from 8AM to 9:15AM.

Is there a way to create a reservation match that, or is the closest we can do is create a weekday reservation for that timeframe, i.e.:

scontrol create reservation \
  reservation=newb101 \
  starttime=2019-09-05T08:00:00 \
  duration=75 \
  users=bob,jane,blah \
  flags=weekday,replace \

This isn't ideal, as it removes 2 nodes from normal circulation for 1 hour 15 minutes MWF when they aren't needed for the class.

Thoughts? Thanks, Mike
