Yes, you'll need to able to ssh freely around from the node where
padb/pdsh is running to all compute nodes as well. For debian I had to
add "export PDSH_RCMD_TYPE=ssh" to my .bashrc to tell it to use ssh
rather than rsh.

Could you update to r283 as well, the "mpirun" resource manager is new
and I discovered this morning that it didn't like digits in hostnames.
As an added benefit it won't use pdsh or ssh if all processes are local.
