yes, all the scripts of a started job will run on the execution node the
SGE submitted the job to.
You can do a rsh or ssh connection to the head node inside your scripts
to run a job on another node. Best if you are using the SGE rsh wrapper.
In a parallel environment you can specify the master queue. That is
where you master job will run, but I do not think this would be a clever
solution for your problem.

Betreff: [GE users] Run script on head node
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.
