I'm currently doing this on our production cluster, and I did hit one 
gotcha'.  I wanted to restart the 6.2 execds on the nodes, so I did 
'service sgeexecd.$CLUSTER_NAME stop'.  Well, that killed *all* the 
sge_shepherd processes (i.e. the ones attached to the 6.1 execd as well 
as the 6.2 execd) and their associated jobs.  Oops.  So I'd recommend 
"kill" rather than the init script for that task.
