Hi James,

I am in the same situation as you are. The basic documentation is at 
 However, there could be some site-specific issues with that configuration. For 
instance the user names in my instance do not correspond to the uid part of the 
galaxy username (email address), which is what released galaxy-dist code 
assumes. Fortunately, Nate and Scott from the Core Galaxy Team helped me get 
through almost all of the issues while we were at the Galaxy Community 
Conference. I am still working through the single remaining issue of drmaa not 
passing modified resource requests to Torque, but the rest appears to work 
stably with Torque 2.5.12.
