[GE users] Modifying cluster config file

When you first install the execd on a machine, we get a
local_config/<machine> file which overwrites the global settings for
xterm etc.


We want to change one of these entries, so from gmon -> cluster
configuration -> modify, and we change the entries but when we try to
"okay" it throws an error box, with 


"! Host <name> already exists!".


The file local_config/<machine> is created with 644 permissions, but
even giving it 777, we still get the error.


We have also noticed that if (for some reason) a machine does not have
an entry, we can create one from qmon-> cluster configuration, but that
you need to stop/start the execd daemon on the host machine, before
changes are picked up!.


We are using 6.0u9 - are other users able to "modify" cluster settings,
and use them immediately without restarting the execd ?


I look forward to your thoughts.


Best regards


Colin Thomas
