I'm having a problem getting additional execution hosts running - and I'm not sure why?  I wondered if someone could help - or give me some pointers.  Here's the scenario....

I am running two VMs, one as the Master (and execution and submit node) and one as an additonal  execution node.  Now the the first node works just dandy.  I can submit jobs and they execute - fabbo!

But the second node seems to setup ok - but at the end of ./install_execd I get the following errors:
using service "sge_commd"
bound to Port 75
error: getting configuration: failed receiving gdi request
error: can't get configuration from qmaster -- backgrounding

Now I gather from reading around that this means the execution host that I am installing has called to the master node - but doesn't get a reply.  Any ideas?  

Much appreciated,
