  I haven't restarted SGE on the frontend node. Yes, I think
restarting would work but thought maybe there are other ways to solve
the problem. I was just afraid the jobs on the compute nodes would go
haywire and the users might go crazy.

[root at compute-0-7 lx24-amd64]# cd /opt/gridengine/
[root at compute-0-7 gridengine]# grep -ir network-0-0 *
[root at compute-0-7 gridengine]#

On the frontend (unless SGE is using the "messages" file as a sort of cache):

[root at frontend gridengine]# grep -ir network-0-0 *
default/spool/qmaster/messages:Tue Mar 14 20:26:45
2006|qmaster|frontend|E|denied: queue "network-0-0.q" does not exist
default/spool/qmaster/messages:Tue Mar 14 20:26:45
2006|qmaster|frontend|E|denied: execution host "network-0-0.local"
does not exist
