we use SGE 6.1u2 . Since some days we have installed some of our submit 
hosts with fedora core 9. We recognize that qstat does not work. Here 
are the error message.

error: commlib error: can't connect to service (Connection refused)
error: unable to contact qmaster using port 6444 on host 

But SGE Qmaster use an other port which is set by nis-tables

ypcat services | grep sge
sge_qmaster     536/tcp         # communication port for SUN GridEngine
sge_execd       539/tcp         # communication port for SUN GridEngine

If I export SGE_QMASTER_PORT=536 that qstat works fine.

Does anybody else use fedora core 9? Probebly this problem is already 
solve in a newer version.
