Well I tried to do an install from my /gridware/sge NFS mount and it
told me that the version of GridEngine which is there was no
compatible with my Ubuntu 13.04 box.

The are all on /gridware/sge e.g.

[root at solexa4 ~]# ps -ef | grep sge
sgeadmin  4553     1  0 Sep16 ?        00:41:52

But given the above problem I was going to go with local install.   On
Ubuntu there is /etc/default/gridengine and so I set in there :


Then I added the execution node on the master and it knows about the
ubuntu machine but cannot talk to it.  e.g. it is "solexa1" below.
The other nodes are all my RHEL5 / CentOS5 boxes.
