How much memory does each node have? Does this happen at startup?

Try adding:

-mca btl_openib_cpc_include rdmacm

I'm not sure if your version of OFED supports this feature, but maybe using XRC may help. I **think** other tweaks are needed to get this going, but I'm not familiar with the details.

Hope that helps,
