I have a very buggy 6.0 version of SGE (segfaults on menus opening, warnings, jobs non getting dispatched whereas they should be ...) and the expected behaviour is not reproduced as it is on my 6.1 version on another cluster.

Someone at work offered me to install briefly a 6.2 over the 6.0 on the problematic cluster to see whether my configuration is wrong or the SGE install is bugged : is it possible, only to update the master host ? Will 6.2 recognize the exec hosts ?

What I would like to do is being able to install 6.2 in a new directory without shutting down the exec hosts, ad come back at 6.0 at any time by supressing the 6.2 folder. Is this feasible ?

Also, I have read that some of you (Rayon, Ron, Reuti ...) have compiled a 6.2u5 version for Linux. May I use this one on RH 5.3, or should I get the trial version of OGE ?

Thanks for having read,
Have a nice day,
