Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problem with running openMPI program
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

It might be best to:

1. Setup a non-root user to run MPI applications
2. Setup SSH keys between the hosts for this non-root user so that you
can "ssh <otherhost> uptime" and not be prompted for a password/

This should help.
