       sge_h_aliases - Grid Engine Enterprise Edition host aliases file format

       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

       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_intro(1), sge_commd(8).
