A quick poke through the source suggests that STN_name is the name of a
node in the share tree (usually either a project, a user or default).

I'd try running qconf -sstree to see how the share tree is set up.

If it has somehow become corrupted try loading a clean new share tree
into grid engine with qconf -Astree.

As for the SSL error, converting the ID quoted to hexadecimal format
got me D0C50A1 which lead me,via google, to this page:

It would appear you have an old version of OpenSSL on some of your
machines.  Find the host with the old version, upgrade it and possibly
recompile  grid engine components against the new version as well.
