Subject: Re: [OMPI users] PML add procs failed --> Returned "Unreachable" (-12) instead of "Success" (0)

Hi Alex

The problem is likely to be that there is no connection available
between grid03 and grid04. Did you create/define an Ethernet/IP
interface directly between those two virtual machines?

Otherwise, there is no way for MPI to communicate between them.
