SGE execd installation on a Windows 2008 server failed at the following stage:

Checking hostname resolving
---------------------------
can't resolve username "VI64-X4250A-SCA11+sgeadmin"

Command failed: ./utilbin/win32-x86/gethostname -aname

Probably a permission problem. Please check file access permissions.
Check read/write permission. Check if SGE daemons are running.

can't resolve username "VI64-X4250A-SCA11+sgeadmin"

Command failed: ./bin/win32-x86/qconf -sh

Probably a permission problem. Please check file access permissions.
Check read/write permission. Check if SGE daemons are running.


This hostname is not known at qmaster as an administrative host.

Real hostname of this machine:                     host, the hostname resolving
 on this host will most likely differ from\n
Aliased hostname (if "host_aliases" file is used): the hostname resolving method
on the qmaster machine\n
Default domain ("none" means ignore):              vi64-x4250a-sca11.sgead.com
Ignore domain names:                               none

The resulting hostname is:              =========> true

If you think that this host has already been added as an administrative

Please check and correct your >/etc/hosts< file and >/etc/nsswitch.conf<
file on this host and on the qmaster machine.

You can now add this host as an administrative host in a seperate
terminal window and then continue with the installation  procedure.

Check again (y/n) ('n' will abort) [y] >>



Comment 1:
The same machine is used as a domain controller.
It appears that the local users and groups snap-in can not be used on a domain
controller.
This might be a reason for the install failure.


Comment 2:
On the primary domain controller (PDC), the local user is the same as the domain
user (because the "local domain" already is the domain).

In a real production environment, it's very unlikely that anyone will use the
primary domain controller to run Grid Engine on it. Nevertheless, this must of
course go to the documentation, and perhaps the installer and the execd could
detect that they run on the PDC and drop this distinction between local and
domain users.
