Subject: Re: [OMPI users] 1.3.1 -rf rankfile behaviour ??
From: Lenny Verkhovsky (lenny.verkhovsky_at_[hidden])
Date: 2009-05-05 07:59:11


Hi,
maximum rank number must be less then np.
if np=1 then there is only rank 0 in the system, so rank 1 is invalid.
please remove "rank 1=node2 slot=*" from the rankfile
Best regards,
Lenny.
