I found something, when trying to submit a test job with a XML descriptor
with this:
globusrun-ws -submit -factory localhost -Ft SGE -f test_super_simple.xml

<!-- test_super_simple.xml -->
    <argument>this is an example_string </argument>
    <argument>Globus was here</argument>

The container's error is this:

2006-06-16 20:46:41,135 ERROR exec.JobManagerScript [Thread-38,run:307]

It seems it is looking for a /etc/sge-jobmanager directory, wich is
specified in the sge.pm file, but I have not such directory or the
jobmanager.conf and vqueues.conf files.

I think it is looking for queue information, wich is not found, and then the
error, am I right?, what do you think?.
