But "lsof -i :my_sge_ports" shows that sge_master and sge_schedd bind on
all interfaces, not just on one IP-address.

The entry in host_aliases should then be

hostname    ip_address_needed_for_SGE    (how is this ip-address
defined, which is it when the master node has several NICs? What if I
have execution nodes that are reached over different NICs ? What does
SGE need this "first" ip-address for?)


Many thanks, Richard
