Sorry to still be on this "/etc" or "/share" discussion w.r.t. grid-security
dir and grid-mapfile, but which should it be?
1) Always "/etc"
2) Always "/share"
3) Sometimes one, sometimes the other.
If the answer is "2", then many of the files which end up in the:
directory still have /etc/grid-* hard-coded in them and are included in the
files which mkxprof creates.
