I am getting the above messages, and the last discussion on this
issue was sometime in Aug/2005 without any conlusion/resolution.

Let me try to describe it again:
I have more than one user, who is using VNCserver window to submit
interactive job
	/opt/app/SGE/6.0/bin/sol-sparc64/qsh -q solaris16G.q at scblad02

The messages user got back is either:

waiting for interactive job to be scheduled ...
Your interactive job 27807 has been successfully scheduled.
waiting for interactive job to be scheduled ...
Could not start interactive job.

Without any xterm window come up. Look like there is no resource
found.  Adding -now no switch so that we can see what's going on.
qstat would show there is a job in qw mode (job-id 27807), I can do
qstat -j 27807 for 3-5 seconds, then it's just gone.

User actually got email telling him that his job is completed.

It's not DISPLAY issue -- user can open qsh using other queue

Nothing found in spool/qmaster/messages

Looking at comon/accounting file, the job seems to finish
:1:0:0.000000:0.000000:0.000000:-U zeke -q solaris16G.q at scblad02
-l num_proc=1 -soft -l group=scdc -I y -P eagle:0.000000:NONE:0.000000

Looking in spool/scblad02 (execution host)
08/10/2006 11:12:59|execd|scblad02|W|reaping job "27801" ptf complains: Job does not exist
08/10/2006 11:19:30|execd|scblad02|W|reaping job "27805" ptf complains: Job does not exist
08/10/2006 11:20:47|execd|scblad02|W|reaping job "27807" ptf complains: Job does not exist

It's not execution host, because other user can open/run job
on the same queue --

What can we do to debug futher?  I am using 6.0u7 release.

Thanks in advance.
