You can install Sun Grid Engine on one of the following locations:
A highly available local file system
The cluster file system
For the advantages and disadvantages of placing the Sun Grid Engine binary files on a highly available local file system and the cluster file system, see Configuration Guidelines for Sun Cluster Data Services in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS.
To enable the type of file system to be identified from the mount point, use a prefix that indicates the type of file system as follows:
For mount points on a highly available local file system, use the /local prefix.
For mount points on the cluster file system, use the /global prefix.
