Does the output of "qstat -f" show a queue instance in state "au"? If  
so that means that the sge_execd is not running.

If you see no queues than it is likely that the exechost functions did  
not get installed at all. Look in the SGE_ROOT directory for a script  
called "inst_sge" - you can call that as root via "./inst_sge -x" to  
try reinstalling the execution host component.
