in newer Linux distributions, the ports for SGE are already set in  
the /etc/services file to be 6444 and 6445. Depending on the order  
of /etc/nsswitch.conf, first the local file is scanned, where it  
finds the (for your setup) wrong information.


Just remove the two false entries for port 6444/6445 from the local / 
etc/services file. Although editing /etc/nsswitch.conf should work,  
it would mean a delay for any basic service lookup, if the nis server  
is down, and had to wait for a timeout.
