We are trying to run a prologue/initial start script that runs on the head node of the cluster prior to running anything on any of the execution nodes that have been selected for the job. It appears that all the prolong/parallel environment scripts run on the execution nodes. Is there any easy way of specifying a script in this way. 

Our solution, if this isn't possible, is the use of parallel environments and manipulating the list of hosts provided so that the parallel startup script runs on the head node.

Any help would be much appreciated.
