Hi,

our users have discovered a P1 bug which will prevent most users from
starting SGE 6.2u2 (qmaster) after upgrading from SGE 6.2/6.2u1 to SGE
6.2u2:

   http://gridengine.sunsource.net/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2949

Who is affected
---------------
   All sites who run SGE 6.2/6.2u1
      - with pending or running jobs in the system which request
        resources (using "-l")
      - where complex attributes are configured in the "global" or local
        host config or queues

Who is not affected
-------------------
  - sites installing a new SGE cluster
  - sites making an upgrade from SGE 6.0/6.1 to SGE 6.2u2
  - sites with no pending/running jobs in an existing SGE cluster and
    no complex attributes configured in the "global" or local host configor
    queues

Workaround
----------
  - there is NO workaround possible if there are pending or running jobs in
    the SGE cluster
  - sites having complex attributes configured in the "global" or local
    host config or in their queues and there are no pending/runnnig jobs in
    the cluster can run the SGE upgrade procedure
       % inst_sge -upd
    See the documentation how to run the upgrade procedure:
       http://wikis.sun.com/display/gridengine62u2/Upgrading

Regards,
Andy
