One of our LSF machines is not able to run a specific program. I want to submit a job such that it goes to any machine except for the failing one. I have read the manuals but could not make it out. Is it possible? If yes, how can I achieve it? I am using Linux.


You can use the select clause of the job's resource requirement. Say alpha is the host that cannot run the job.

bsub -R "select[hname!='alpha']" sleep 1000
