we are currently submitting patches to Sunsolve which will allow that SGE
6.2u2 (which will tell about itself it's "6.2u2_1") binaries can be
installed over SGE 6.2/6.2u1 with running and pending jobs (of course

binaries are ready for download 5-8 working days after the availability of

problems! This problem will not affect under any circumstances such
