I received an email from a user who tried to
install SGE 5.3p5 on JDS.
When installing SGE startup script, it states that
the following service is
required to install the startup script.

> We can install the startup script that
> Grid Engine is started at machine boot (y/n) [y] >>
> cp /home/sgeadmin/53p5/default/common/rcsge
> /sbin/insserv /etc/init.d/rcsge
> insserv: Service afs has to be enabled for
service rcsge
> insserv: exiting now!

How can I add the aforementioned service (afs)?

BTW, the installation was completed successfully
and the SGE cluster is
functional. The only problem is that the startup
script didn't work at the reboot.


NOTE: it is filed OS version suse_linux_8.2
because there's no JDS entry in the OS version.

Suggested Fix:


I already noticed that on a different machine with
a newer Suse
distribution.. It looks that the insserv binary
has changed. "afs" is
usually not available on systems and in the past
this caused no problems.

The "afs" requirement is already removed from the
6.0 startup scripts. It
can be safely deleted from the 5.3 start script
(util/startup_template) as well.

so the line

   # Required-Start: $network afs

can be changed to

   # Required-Start: $network
