To play *safe*, you can stop the qmaster using the normal way, and then go
to $SGE_ROOT/default/spool/qmaster/ (CELL = default for most cases) and
delete the lock file.

When the shadow daemon finds that the original master is not updating the
heartbeat file, and that there is no lock file, it will start a new
qmaster/schedd pair.

Of course kill -9 works, but if qmaster is doing something to the spool
files, then it is possible that killing qmaster may corrupt the data.
