On further digging, we found that the script is failing in the following part 
of $GALAXY_HOME/lib/galaxy/jobs/runners/pbs.py:

        # submit
        galaxy_job_id = job_wrapper.job_id
        log.debug("(%s) submitting file %s" % ( galaxy_job_id, job_file ) )
        log.debug("(%s) command is: %s" % ( galaxy_job_id, command_line ) )
        job_id = pbs.pbs_submit(c, job_attrs, job_file, pbs_queue_name, None)

        # check to see if it submitted
        if not job_id:
            errno, text = pbs.error()
            log.debug( "(%s) pbs_submit failed, PBS error %d: %s" % 
(galaxy_job_id, errno, text) )
            job_wrapper.fail( "Unable to run this job due to a cluster error" )

Could this be a problem related to the pbs_python egg (v. pbs_python-4.1.0) 
being used by Galaxy or a Torque-specific issue? Just to reiterate, we are on a 
development snapshot of Torque which is hard to replace as many other people 
using it.

Also, could you please advise which Torque & pbs_python version combinations 
have you successfully tested against?


PS: pbs_python has a new version 4.3 out 
(https://subtrac.sara.nl/oss/pbs_python/wiki/TorqueInstallation), why is this 
not in the PSU egg repository yet? Would that make a difference?

Hi Nate,

We went through the mom_logs. We could see the jobs which were completed 
successfully in Galaxy. However, the job/ tool run which failed were not seen. 
These failed jobs were never submitted to PBS queue to be logged in the 
On another note, is the error, "pbs_submit failed, PBS error 15031: Protocol 
(ASN.1) error" related to the pbs_python version in Galaxy and the Torque 
Also find attached a workaround we had adapted to get the Galaxy working on a 
PBS Torque version. Could this problem be related to one of those workarounds?
Is there any specific PBS Torque version on which Galaxy has been tested?

Thank you for your time Nate,
Warm Regards,

Also, you may want to see if PBS is making an attempt to queue this job on a 
particular node, and if so, check the mom_logs for that node.
