SGE_H_ALIASES(5)  Grid Engine Enterprise Edition File Formats SGE_H_ALIASES(5)



NAME
       sge_h_aliases - Grid Engine Enterprise Edition host aliases file format

DESCRIPTION
       All Grid Engine Enterprise Edition components use a hostname resolving
       service provided by sge_commd(8) to identify hosts via a unique
       hostname.  sge_commd(8) itself references standard UNIX directory
       services such as DNS, NIS and /etc/hosts to resolve hostnames. In rare
       cases these standard services cannot be setup cleanly and Grid Engine
       Enterprise Edition communication daemons running on different hosts are
       unable to automatically determine a unique hostname for one or all
       hosts which can be used on all hosts. In such situations a Grid Engine
       Enterprise Edition host aliases file can be used to provide the
       communication daemons with a private and consistent hostname resolution
       database.

       The default location for the host aliases file is
       <sge_root>/<cell>/common/host_aliases.  To use a different host
       aliases, it must be specified explicitly to sge_commd(8) via the -a
       command line option.

FORMAT
       For each host a single line must be provided with a blank, comma or
       semicolon separated list of hostname aliases. The first alias is
       defined to be the unique hostname which will be used by all Grid Engine
       Enterprise Edition components using the hostname aliasing service of
       the sge_commd(8).
