Are you using a RPC-based spooling DB server or is your BDB over NFSv4?
Only those two methods allows for the use of a shadow.
Did you source your settings.sh file?
Is this a different arch than what you have installed?
(look at uname -a and then look in the util dir to verify)

It used to be that installing the shadow master just involved putting the
hostname of the machine that will run the shadow master in
/opt/sge/default/common/shadow_masters, and then starting the shadow master
on that node with "/opt/sge/default/common/sgemaster -shadowd". A few SGE
versions ago I tested failover and it was fine. sge_qmaster runs on the main
head node and sge_shadowd runs on the shadow/spare head node.

Earlier this week the main head node was rebooted, and it appeared that
failover worked since the act_qmaster file was updated to hold the
shadow/spare node name. But SGE commands got the error that they couldn't
find the connection for the qmaster port. So did qping.

So I looked at the 6.2u5 docs, and they now say to "install" the shadow
master with "./inst_sge -sm". OK, maybe something changed since the shadow
master failover worked for us in an earlier version. But trying that, I get:

Creating local configuration
value == NULL for attribute "mailer" in configuration list of "bhmnode1"

./util/install_modules/inst_common.sh: line 261: Translate: command not

./util/install_modules/inst_common.sh: line 263: Translate: command not
./util/install_modules/inst_common.sh: line 264: Translate: command not

So... How do I get shadow master failover working again?
