Hello all.
We are maintaining and installing gridengine (currently 6.2u1) via the  
puppet (automated administration) tool.

We are not using any shared directories (especially $SGE_ROOT/ 
default/...) with "default" being our cellname.

My question is, what information is needed to install a exechost via a  
We already create the template, and installation works pretty fine.
The only problem that I have is, this.
Currently we rsync $SGE_ROOT/default from our gridmaster to all the  
admin/exec/submit hosts.
Due to the nature of puppet, it takes to runs (of puppet) such that  
the execnode installation actually succeeds.

By looking through $SGE_ROOT/default/common my guess is, that I only  
need to create;

$SGE_ROOT/default/common/act_qmaster (with the qmaster as content) and
$SGE_ROOT/default/common/cluster_name (with the name of the cluster as  

Is there more? I remember that, back then (a year ago), when I started  
writing the sge-puppet module it did not work when the qmaster was  
mentioned in the exechost installation template. Thus I created the  
rsync workaround.

If these two files suffice, then I could get rid of the constant rsync
