Hi Hermant,

Thanks for the suggestion. I've tried setting that parameter to 5, but it has 
not helped. I've noticed in the galaxy server output that I'm getting the 
following error:

galaxy.jobs.runners.pbs DEBUG 2012-05-25 08:13:17,957 (96) pbs_submit failed, 
PBS error 15031: Protocol (ASN.1) error

I believe this is why certain jobs are failing. I've googled a bit for this 
error, and found many threads where similar problems were reported. Here are a 


Is anyone aware of a solution to this issue?
