All  Univa Grid Engine components use a hostname resolving service pro-
       vided by the communication library to identify hosts via a unique host-
       name.  The communication library itself references standard UNIX direc-
       tory services such as DNS, NIS and /etc/hosts to resolve hostnames.  In
       rare  cases  these  standard services cannot be setup cleanly and Univa
       Grid Engine 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 Univa Grid  Engine  host
       aliases  file  can  be used to provide the communication daemons with a
       private and consistent hostname resolution database.

       The location  for  the  host  aliases  file  is  <sge_root>/<cell>/com-

       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 Univa Grid
       Engine components using the hostname aliasing service of the communica-
       tion library.
