could there be an issue in the area of /etc/nsswitch.conf or ncsd 
configuration or just a plain routing issue to the ypserver/nameserver?

Has your /etc/hosts changed in the way how long and short names are listed?

How does the same user resolve the hostname? With "dig" or "nslookup" or 
with the gethostbyname utility in <sge_root>/utilbin/<arch>/?
