Hi all,

Over the weekend something seems to have gone wrong with one of the 
nodes in our cluster. We get the error:

cannot run on host "cpu-1-3.local" until clean up of an previous run has 

I have restarted the node but the error is still there. We are using 
OGS/Grid Engine 2011.11 as implemented in ROCKS 6.1.
How can I fix the node so jobs can run on it again?

Also, does anyone know what might have caused this error to appear in 
the first place?

Best wishes and thank you in advance for your help
