Subject: Re: [OMPI users] mpirun problem

I suppose one initial question is: what version of Open MPI are you
running? OMPI 1.3 should not be attempting to ssh a daemon on a local
job like this - OMPI 1.2 -will-, so it is important to know which one
we are talking about.

Just do "mpirun --version" and it should tell you.
