[gridengine users] "Admin user 'none' does not exist on this host"

Thank you for this very helpful info! For some reason
$SGE_ROOT/default/common/bootstrap had a line 

admin_user none 

In any
event, when I changed bootstrap line to 

admin_user root 

I was able
to proceed 

So, apparently there was something funny when I was
installing Qmaster on the first server. I would like to "uninstall" and
reinstall it once more (since I will have to do it in different
infrastructure, anyway - and I'd rather have higher confidence that I am
doing all steps correctly)... but I am not sure what "uninstall"
entails. "chkconfig off" and delete $SGE_ROOT/default/ directory?
Anyway, haven't looked in the docs for uninstall steps. Hopefully, I'll
find something relevant there.

BTW, I just tried to reproduce the problem locally on 1 machine and it
seemed to work fine.

the beginning of the setup "Main configuration" (it takes the owner of

submit hosts on remote machines. I set up passwordless root access, so
now remote machines are reachable. However, when I click "Install"
button, I am getting "Admin user missing" warning with the details
"Admin user 'none' does not exist on this host" Documentation advises to
"Setup the host properly so that name service provides the name properly
to the remote machine (or create the user locally)." I wish it told me
where to do that, and why the installer thinks that admin user is 'none'
rather than root. If I right-click on the line with remote host, and
then choose configure - Connect user is 'root', not 'none' Any
suggestions? Thanks Felix
