qrdel - delete xxQS_NAMExx Advance Reservations (AR)


qrdel [-f] [-help] [-u wc_user_list] wc_ar_list


Qrdel provides a means for a user/operator/manager to delete one or more Advance Reservations (AR) referenced by numeric id or name. A manager/operator can delete ARs belonging to any user, while regular users can only delete their own ARs. If a manager wants to delete another user's AR, the manager can specify the AR id. By default, "qrdel wc_ar_name" will delete only the ARs belonging to that user. A manager is able to delete another user's AR via "-u wc_user_list". Jobs referring to an AR tagged for deletion will also be removed. Only if all jobs referring to an AR are removed from the xxQS_NAMExx database will the AR also be removed. Qrdel deletes ARs in the order in which the AR identifiers are presented. Find additional information concerning wc_user_list and wc_ar_list in
