So this is *inside* a SLURM job? I.e., in "srun -N 2 -A"? What does
"env | grep SLURM" show?

Note that launching N processes on a single node is the default behavior
for Open MPI if you don't specify a hostfile or no hosts are implicitly
specified by a resource manager (e.g., you're running in a shell that is
not under the control of SLURM).

As noted by someone else, you need to have Open MPI installed and
available in your PATH on all nodes. See the FAQ:

When using SLURM, rsh/ssh are not used to startup jobs -- SLURM's native
interface is used.
