I have 25 users and 5 workstation which I want to use for interactive jobs during day time.
I want to use SGE in order to either allocate session on these machines (qlogin) or in order to run the interactive jobs on these hosts using qsh or qsub. (In the second way all users will log in to a single machine which will be functioned as a submitter host only.)

I don't get your intended setup. You have 25 workers with 25
workstations and want to use SGE to grant them access to any of the
other workstations?
