When determining the directory organization, you must decide the following:
The directory organization (for example, whether you will install a complete software tree on each workstation, directories cross-mounted, or a partial directory tree on some workstations, and so on)
Where to locate each root directory, sge-root
Because changing the installation directory or the spool directories requires a new installation of the system, use extra care to select a suitable installation directory up front. Note that all important information from a previous installation can be preserved.
By default, the installation procedure installs the grid engine software, manuals, spool areas, and the configuration files in a directory hierarchy under the installation directory (see Figure 1–1). If you accept this default behavior, you should install or select a directory with the access permissions that are described in File Access Permissions.
You can select the spool areas to put in other locations during the primary installation. See Configuring Queues in N1 Grid Engine 6 Administration Guide for instructions.
