[Rocks-Discuss] Rocks 5: unable to contact qmaster using port 536

Hi folks,

I have a fresh install of Rocks 5.

Unfortunately, the sge_qmaster fails to start. It immediately bailed  
out on me as the external hostname (in our case efrafa.audio,  
configured originally by DHCP during the install) as returned by the  
hostname command did not match the internal hostname (efrafa.local)  
that has been written to /opt/gridengine/default/common/act_qmaster .

I fixed that by using the internal hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network.

Now, the script gets along further, but then reports the following:

--- snip ---

-bash-3.1# service sgemaster start
    starting sge_qmaster

sge_qmaster didn't start!
Please check the messages file

    starting sge_schedd
error: commlib error: can't connect to service (Connection refused)
error: getting configuration: unable to contact qmaster using port  
536 on host "efrafa.local"
error: can't get configuration from qmaster -- backgrounding

--- snap ---

Any thoughts on that? And should I file a bug report on the first issue?
