We run Galaxy on a VM and it offloads jobs to two different clusters,  however 
in our case our Galaxy filesystem is NFS mounted on both clusters.  For both 
clusters we needed to setup the VM as a "submit node" (with torque: qmgr -c 
"set server submit_hosts += galaxyvm"), and we also setup a TORQUE "$usecp" 
directive for all of our pbs_moms so it would do a local copy for stderr/stdout 
files rather than try to scp them back to galaxy:/path/to/galaxy/database/pbs.
