Not sure what the problem is. I'm not sure the Galaxy that is
distributed with Biolinux is really setup to be used with PBS/Torque.
If you have pbs/torque installed and running properly and if you can
submit job scripts via the qsub command as whatever user Galaxy runs
under - the job_conf.xml file you have should be fine.
Have you scrambled a pbs_python egg for your box?
LIBTORQUE_DIR=/path/to/libtorque python scripts/scramble.py -e pbs_python
The dependencies for that Galaxy instance may be a little different
since it is installed with a package manager - I am not sure if it
allows scrambling eggs dynamically like that. It might be worth
downloading a fresh Galaxy into your home directory or something and
configure and test it to use PBS. This would allow you to narrow the
problem down to something about Galaxy versus something about the PBS

We are using a Bio-Linux 8 Galaxy instance and are currently trying to
integrate in into a PBS/Torque cluster. Currently we are able to run jobs
locally but not via PBS. Can anyone provide us with a step by step guide to
configure Galaxy and the PBS.
I have included some of the errors we are receiving below:
galaxy.datatypes.metadata DEBUG 2015-08-19 14:56:42,920 Failed to cleanup

We can not figure out what is stopping our jobs from entering the PBS queue.
Below is our job_conf.xml.
<!-- 'workers' is the number of threads for the runner's work queue.
<!-- The default from <plugins> is used if not defined for a <plugin>
<plugin id="local" type="runner"
<plugin id="pbs" type="runner"
<!-- Additional job handlers - the id should match the name of a
[server:<id>] in universe_wsgi.ini -->
<!-- Destinations define details about remote resources and how jobs should
be executed on those remote resources -->
<destination id="defaultq" runner="pbs"
Thank you very much for all the assistance!
