Again, where do I put which files ? I have the same /var/sgeCA 
on both machines, and the sge_ca -copy for the user MSBI on qmaster

I know a little about the public key concept, but I am lacking 
some of the sge specifics, qmaster complains about MSBI credentials,
so I assume there was some challenge-response conversation:

1) the windows:execd has sent the challenge signed with 
   its Key using C:\Docs and Settings\MSBI\.sge\port1072\default\private

2) the qmaster process has tried to verify the key in 
   and did not succeed.

Is that roughly correct ? Any way to get more debugging on the reason 
for "request for user MSBI does not match credentials for connection"?

I have provided the MSBI windows password, and it shows in 
cat qmaster:/vol/sge/default/common/sgepasswd
MSBI 0080c....
