one every node, the (anonymized) mount line is:

mount_host:/share/sge62 on /sge62 type nfs

I had already done this (probably lost in the long initial post) - 
that's why I restarted the sge_execd on the nodes and qmaster daemon. 
And afterwards the NFS errors stopped, tho the inability to run jobs 
on those Qs remains.  All AMD nodes are now spooling to a local dir
