Hi users,
I recently brought online a new cluster segment that connects to my 
qmaster machine via a second network interface (the machines are on a 
different subnet that the "normal" cluster nodes).  I did this by 
changing the act_qmaster contents to indicate the ip name that 
corresponds to the second qmaster interface.  This seems to be working 
(I can run jobs) with the following exception: SGE has only allocated 1 
slot per machine on the new cluster segment.

admin at ornl29.ornl              BIP   0/1       0.00     lx24-amd64   
admin at ornl30.ornl              BIP   0/1       0.00     lx24-amd64

Even though the machines have more than one processor and SGE indicates 

ornl28                  lx24-amd64      2  0.00    3.9G   61.6M  
960.0M     0.0
ornl29                  lx24-amd64      4  0.00    7.8G  123.2M  
960.0M     0.0
ornl30                  lx24-amd64      4  0.00    7.8G  128.0M  
960.0M     0.0

I have installed the machines using the same automated system that 
installs the other machines on the first cluster segment (with the 
exception of changing the act_qmaster file).  What could be the problem 
here?  Is there a better way to configure this cluster segment that 
needs to access the qmaster machine via a different interface?
