[GE users] two network cards per node

Hello List,

we have two network cards installed per compute node (which all have two
CPUs). We would like to make sure that the grid engine utilizes both of
them for MPI traffic. We are unclear however how to exactly achieve
this. We put the two network cards on separate subnets due to hardware
restrictions. When we start sge_execd it binds to the first IP address
and does not appear to use the second one. Can we tell it to bind one
slot to each network card?

Thanks already, nick
