Question:

If a running job is holding all or part of a renewable virtual resource, will the held resource amount be returned to the pool automatically if the job is manually changed to SUCCESS status?

Answer:

A manual status change to a completion status for a job holding all or part of a virtual resource will not trigger the automatic release of the resource, regardless of how the "free=" portion of the resource attribute is set. The resource must be manually returned in this situation. Only a completion status that comes back from the agent will trigger an automatic resource release.
