Actually, according to the documentation at


this is correct:
Permissions for qrsh are not set properly

Check the permissions of the following files. They are located in

Note that rlogin and rsh need to be setuid and owned by root.

-r-s--x--x 1 root root 28856 Sep 18 06:00 rlogin*
-r-s--x--x 1 root root 19808 Sep 18 06:00 rsh*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 sgeadmin adm 128160 Sep 18 06:00 rshd*

In my case I had root owning rshd, so I changed it to local user "grid".

I'm still getting the following errors, though:

echo $ARCH
$ qrsh ls
Your "qrsh" request could not be scheduled, try again later.

I can, however, qsub a file:

 more testls

$ qsub testls
Your job 20 ("testls") has been submitted.

And it shows up on the master:

bp01:/opt/default/spool/job_scripts root# ls
