What is the error message in detail?

What do you mean by "they are not the same"? In SGE all participants  
of a cluster  have the same namespace. SGE will only record the user  
and group name only. In former time there was a feature to map users  
on the qmaster machine to different users on the execution hosts. So  
I would assume more the opposite error message: can find group name  
for group ID xyz.
