you just duplicated the sgemaster script? You also need the complete  
directory in $SGE_ROOT, which is normally called "default" (i.e. the  
name of the cell) and bootstrap some information there.

Before you start the manual installation, export the SGE_QMASTER_PORT  
and SGE_EXECD_PORT with the new information, to supersede the  
information you might get otherwise with /etc/services.

In the end you have two qmaster running on this machine; one for each
