Subject: [OMPI users] Default to TCP/IP?
From: Christopher Tanner (christopher.tanner_at_[hidden])

I compiled the Open MPI source with openib support. However, the
Infiniband part is still not working right (I had to build it from
source since I'm using Ubuntu, and it's a mess).

If I execute 'mpirun', I assume it will automatically look to
communicate using Infiniband. However, since Infiniband is not
working, will Open MPI default back to using the standard ethernet
connection or will it just not work at all? Is there a way to tell
Open MPI to do so in some configuration file?
