		We recently upgraded our scheduler from 6.0u8 to 6.2,
and something odd has happened. 


	  I probably did that.
	Look on each node, there is a script in /etc/init.d/boot.local
which creates a directory called /var/spool/sge at boot time (in case it
is not there).
	But more importantly check   qconf -msconf
	and look for your sge_spool_directory setting!
	The cluster was set up this way as local spooling cuts down the
NFS  load - its quite a big cluster!
