I try to install an execution host... as explained in another thread.
No success yet. It failed while trying to connect to qmaster, using
I tried to do "qconf -sh", and it just can't connect to the qmaster.
The service is running in the master, on port 536. No problem
connecting the port actually, as I succeed to connect using telnet.
"qconf" identify my machine as "unknown" although I've setup a
hostname in hostname.eri0 file on local computer, and also registered
in /etc/hosts file both on local and  the master computer. The
execution computer got IP from DHCP, but don't get a hostname. I
created a small program that update /etc/hosts file on master computer
everytime the execution computer got different IP address from DHCP.

I want to ask, how qconf get the local hostname?
Do you have any suggestion how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance,
