Hi all - I have a 50 node spot cluster running. I tried to add 10
additional nodes and at some point along the way it failed. Only 2 nodes
were added to the cluster, but they aren't getting SGE jobs. I tried
re-adding the nodes using '-x -a' but it fails. So I then tried to remove
the nodes, and that is failing as well. How do I fix this? Here's the

[ec2-user_at_awsmicro plugins]$ starcluster removenode ngscluster node060

!!! ERROR - Error occured while running plugin

!!! ERROR - remote command 'source /etc/profile && qconf -dattr

!!! ERROR - hostgroup hostlist node060 _at_allhosts' failed with status 1:

!!! ERROR - error writing object "_at_allhosts" to spooling database

At this point, I have to go into the AWS web console and remove the nodes
myself as starcluster isn't able to.
