This is a similar problem to issue #2249, and in fact I believe it may be the
same underlying issue. NIS groups are not properly used in the sge_group2gid
function, and according to #2249, LDAP does not seem to work either.

Version 6.1 does not work correctly unless the primary group of the user is in
the local group file on the system(s). I had to add the primary groupname and
groupid into the local /etc/group file for any grid command to work, otherwise,
the following error occurs:

error: sge_group2gid failed for groupname users1

Where users1 is the primary group of the user issuing the command.

This problem does not exist in v6.0u5, v6.0u10, or v6.1beta2, but was introduced
in v6.1.
