Are you using SDM 1.0u5 (released with SGE 6.2u5) or SDM 1.0u3?

For 1.0u5 the configuration parameters are described at 

The SDM cloud adapter does NOT use the AWS Access and Secret Key, it 
instead uses an EC2 user private key file (pk-*.pem) and user 
certificate file (cert-*.pem), see the configuration parameters 
ec2_user_private_key_file and ec2_user_certificate_file.

I don't have any personal experience with Eucalyptus, so I don't know if 
Eucalyptus supports this authentication method.
