the following advice was given by Reuti:

This is one of the rare cases, where you have to shutdown the whole
cluster, and edit the file with an editor.

It's in $sge_root/default/common the file configuration. Then just
restart all the daemons with the "rcsge start".

Unfortunately that does not work with berkeleydb spooling. The info is 
contained in a database. I could in principle dump the database using

db_dump -p default/spool/spooldb/sge

then modifying the content, cross the fingers and restoring it back. But 
this is for sure not the recommended way. Any ideas how to change safely 
the execd_spool_dir?
