I'm installed 5.3p6 on redhat with the master on a stock 7.2 host with the 2.4.7-10smp kernel.
Hardware is dual cpu Supermicros with Xeon processors. I ran the qmaster install as root
with an adminstrative admin of sgeadmin. Directory is an nfs mount of /tools/sge/default
with the leaf being a link to the actual /tools/sge/5.3p6 directory, therefore the default cell
would be /tools/sge/default/default.
Now I'm trying to install the first exec host as root and it's hanging starting the daemons:
   Grid Engine execution daemon startup
   Starting execution daemon daemon. Please wait ...
      starting sge_execd
   starting program: /tools/sge/default/bin/glinux/sge_commd
   using service "sge_commd"
   bound to port 536
   <hangs forever>
If I do a ps -efww I do see both the execd and commd running.
One note is that I didn't see in the instructions that I had to make the qmaster and exec
host as well. I ran that install after trying to debug the above for a bit. Also, root does not
have permissions to /tools/sge.
Any direction would be appreciated.
