Subject: [OMPI users] orte_grpcomm_modex failed
From: devendra rai (rai.devendra_at_[hidden])

Hello Community, I have been struggling with this error for quite some time: It looks like MPI_INIT failed for some reason; your parallel process is likely to abort.  There are many reasons that a parallel process can fail during MPI_INIT; some of which are due to configuration or environment problems.  This failure appears to be an internal failure; here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an Open MPI developer):   orte_grpcomm_modex failed   --> Returned "Data unpack would read past end of buffer" (-26) instead of "Success" (0) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------- mpirun has exited due to process rank 1 with PID 18945 on node tik35x.ethz.ch exiting without calling "finalize". This may have caused other processes in the application to be terminated by signals sent by mpirun (as reported here). I am running this on a cluster and this has started happening only after a recent rebuild of openmpi-1.4.3. Interestingly, I have the same version of openmpi on my PC, and the same application works fine. I have looked into this error on the web, but there is very little discussion, on the causes, or how to correct it. I asked the admin to attempt a re-install of openmpi, but I am not sure whether this will solve the problem. Can some one please help? Thanks a lot. Best, Devendra Rai
