Our nodes are named node001 ... node0xx in our cluster. I wonder, is it possible to submit a job to a specific node using Slurm's sbatch command? If so, can someone post an example code for that?

I figured it out. You need to use -w node0xx or --nodelist=node0xx.

    You need to provide the partition too lest you want to get a "requested node not in this partition" error as some nodes can be in several partitions (in my case we have a node that's in the fat and the fat_short partitions).

    Here is the link to the documentation for sbatch on the -w flag.
