Subject: Re: [OMPI users] mpirun is in the PATH, but "orted: command not found"

How did you configure OMPI? Did you inlaced --with-tm so that the native Torque support was built? If you do, then you shouldn't need to add a -machinefile to your cmd line as we'll automatically pickup the allocation.

If you run your second way:

> /appl/mpi/openmpi/1.4.4/bin/mpirun -n $NUMPROCS -machinefile ./hosts_openmpi /appl/mpi/openmpi/1.4.4/bin/mpitests-IMB-MPI1 runs without problem.

then mpirun automatically assigns the required paths because you used an absolute path to mpirun. However, this only occurs if you are using the rsh launcher instead of the Torque one, so I suspect you forgot to include the native Torque support.

The problem is that without the native support, Torque doesn't know about the orteds (as they are launched via rsh instead of Torque), and so Torque can't forward the environment like it is supposed to do.
