Incidentally, the key ingredient here is the "-npernode 7" part. The
machine file only needs enough slots. E.g., you could have had:
% cat machinefile
mpirun will see that there are enough slots on each node, but load only
7 up per node due to the -npernode switch.
That said, I don't know what's going wrong in your case -- only that
things work as advertised for me.
