Gary,

the installation creates the install log file in /tmp, after a 
successful installation this file would be moved to 
mnt/grid/l268/sgeadmin/default/common/install_logs/
Your output shows that the log file copy does not work. You're writing 
that SGE_ROOT is read only, this could be the problem why the log file 
can't be copied.
This could be a bug. If you want to see the debug output, you could have 
a look into this /tmp/install.30775 file.

There is currently no way to change the logging directory, but looking 
into SGE_ROOT/util/install_modules/inst_common.sh, you will find a 
function called MoveLog().
In this function you will find a line: 
install_log_dir="$SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/install_logs"
Change this to your own need, please. If you could send me your log 
file, I will have a look on it

Regards,
Marco
