Is using the global one, I believe - at least it tells me so if I use a 

[kdf51254 at pc030 ~]$ qlogin -q test.q
local configuration pc030.sc.diamond.ac.uk not defined - using global 

(Maybe I should add a note about our setup, though I'm not sure it's 
important here - we don't have a head node or something. All cluster 
nodes route, the SGE_ROOT is on a central NFS share, all workstations we 
have are submit hosts. So this pc030 is simply my normal workstation. Oh 
and the cluster nodes don't all sit on the same network, and it is 
always a different network from where the workstations are. That 
shouldn't be a problem though?)

About the global/local configuration again, the node will of course have 
a local configuration once I try to use ssh instead of builtin; because 
I add one to define the qlogin_daemon etc. As I had understood this this 
should work - I did not want all nodes in the queue to use the ssh method.
