The problem is not that the sge_execd daemons do not start on boot. 

All nodes where still up and running, only the sge_execd daemon on 
each node had died due to a (NFS) fileserver failure. On that 
fileserver SGE is installed. Also the spool directories and so on are 
on that fileserver.

So I just wanted to know if there was an elegant way to start the 
sge_execd daemons again on all nodes with a single command.

Somebody else suggested using pdsh, which I quite like. So that's the 
path I will follow, I guess.
