There is a script called "inst_sge" in $SGE_ROOT that will automate a  
template-driven install.

  ./inst_sge -m -auto /path/to/template.txt -- install the sge master
  ./inst_sge -x -auto /path/to/template.txt -- install the sge execd

This page has some additional info:


The auto installation process is sometimes difficult. SGE is  
*extremely* sensitive to things like hostnames and forward/reverse  
DNS resolution. In addition, the template driven install does not  
generally provide much information about why it does not work (check  
the log in /tmp/ for info when it fails).  Once you get a  known good  
template written the process is pretty smooth but creating that  
template in the first place is a trial-and-error sort of thing. Also  
the inst_sge script assumes that some sort of passwordless RSH/SSH  
login mechanism is in place.
