I think the user is saying that they want CMS.A to get the first crack at the resources
regardless of fairshare as well.. this is the second CMS facility in recent months
that wants to do that. To do this you can set the priority halflife to a very long value
so that the effective priority doesn't go up after they have run a long time.. But
in addition you would have to set the GROUP_PRIO_FACTOR of the atlas group
high as well.

The groups are independent of the individual user fairshare. In addition to giving cms.A the best priority, you’ll want to make sure that group CMS has the largest quota.
I think you want to look at the GROUP_QUOTA_* knobs here:
One way to set things up is something like the following:
GROUP_QUOTA_DYNAMIC_cms = .99
GROUP_QUOTA_DYNAMIC_atlas = .01
GROUP_ACCEPT_SURPLUS = true
then to adjust the priority factor of cms.A appropriately.
