(moving this thread from the LAM/MPI mailing list to the OMPI devel
list because it's really about Open MPI, not LAM/MPI)

I'm not sure what you mean by that; MTT does not require network
access. MTT can be best when used this way (e.g., for Open MPI
nightly regression testing), but you can certainly setup MTT to run
100% internally. I know that both Myricom and Mellanox use MTT
internally for their own private MPI testing, for example.

Regardless, are you able to run simple Open MPI applications at all?
Can you compile and run MPI "hello world"? Tests like that are a
better place diagnose problems than trying to run an entire test suite.

Did you specifically enable udapl support? If so, you probably
shouldn't -- if you're using an OpenFabrics Linux stack, OMPI prefers
the use of the verbs stack directly, not udapl. Trying to use both
udapl and verbs would result in... well, weirdness. :-) So you might
want to disable OMPI's use of udapl.

Please see for a list of
information that we ask for when there's a run-time problem with Open
