Hello !

I'm just trying to use the grid engine to run jobs with more than one 
parallel process on each node. If I use qrsh -inherit for the first time 
sending the process to the background on any machine everything works 
nice. But using the same machine for another command, I only receive the 
message 'error: executing task for job xxx failed:' .

Simple example of what I'm trying to do:
qrsh -inherit host1 sleep 60 &
qrsh -inherit host1 hostname

This example has the same behaviour as my problem, but the problem 
itself is more difficult, so that I can't use a shellscipt containing 
all commands and sending it as a single task to the destination host.

Reading about the error I found that I have to increase the gid-range, 
but increasing the range from 100 gids to 1000 gids did't change 
anything and I did't find any limits to the number of qrsh commands I 
can use parallely.
Is there a way to start processes like this without installing a special 
client on the destination host ?
