Cannot determine start time for job

pbs

#1

Sometimes when I run showstart to determine when the PBS scheduler has placed my job, it returns

INFO: cannot determine start time for job xxxx

Is there any way to tell if there’s something wrong with my job, or something wrong with the scheduler, or any other way to troubleshoot this message and figure out what’s gone wrong?

Ben- Can you provide a screenshot of the interaction? The command as you enter it and then the message returned by the system?
