If both the necessary daemons are running on the master and execution hosts, the grid engine software should be operational. Check by issuing a trial command.
Log in to either the master host or another administrative host.
In your standard search path, make sure to include sge-root/bin.
From the command line, type the following command.
% qconf -sconf
This qconf command displays the current global cluster configuration (see Basic Cluster Configuration in N1 Grid Engine 6 Administration Guide).
If this command fails, your SGE_ROOT environment variable is not set correctly.
If no cell name was specified during installation, the value of cell is default.
If not, verify whether your NIS services map contains entries for sge_qmaster and sge_execd.
If the SGE_EXECD_PORT and SGE_QMASTER_PORT variables are not used in these files, then the services database (for example, /etc/services or the NIS services map) on the machine from which you run the command must provide entries for both sge_qmaster and sge_execd. If it doesn't, add such an entry to the machine's services database, giving it the same value as is configured on the master host.
Retry the qconf command.
