Dear all,

I'm seeing some user's job getting a StartTime 3 days in the future although there are plenty of resources available in the the partition (and the user is well below maxTRESPU of the partition).

Attached is our slurm.conf and the dump of "sacctmgr list qos -P". I'd be grateful for any insight and happy to provide more information.

The scontrol show job output is as follows:
