Sorry for the delay in replying.

Do you have any firewall software running on your nodes (e.g.,
iptables)? OMPI uses random TCP ports to connect between nodes for
control messages. If they can't reach each other because TCP ports
are blocked, Bad Things will happen (potentially even a hang, because
firewalls can cause packets to be silently dropped).
