OK, done that - although I'm sure that /etc/hosts had been in that
state for at least a year, quite honestly.

Yes; I only did that to get it to spit out some helpful error

Well, I don't get error messages now on starting sgemaster, but all
my queues have gone .. :o

 root at linux6:/data/linux6/jg# /etc/init.d/sgemaster start
    starting sge_qmaster
    starting sge_schedd
 local configuration linux6 not defined - using global configuration
 root at linux6:/data/linux6/jg#

 linux6:~> qstat -f

Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints!
