[GE users] Default queue state for rebooted machines?

Morning all,
I was just wondering if there is a way to configure SGE (version 5.3p6) in
such a way that when a known machine/execution host reboots itself (for
whatever reason) and becomes operational again, it should not automatically
be placed in the set of active execution hosts? Something as simple as
starting all queueus in disabled mode would be ideal.
Our jobs rely on data being uploaded into shared memory before they can run
and, because the machine rebooted and was devoid of our data in its shared
memory, SGE sent huge amounts of jobs to that machine because it was
processing them so quickly. We would have been better off if the machine had
remained dead!
Any ideas if this is possible? If it is possible but only in N1Grid, then
please let me know as we will be migrating to 6.0.4 (or whatever the then
current version) later on this year.
