Subject: Re: [OMPI users] openmpi errors on ubuntu:no connectivity

Is there any chance you can upgrade to Open MPI v1.4? 1.2.x. is fairly ancient.

Upgrading to 1.4.x will fix the "unable to find any HCAs..." warning message.

For the a.out message, however, it is generally easiest to have the executable available on all nodes in the same filesystem location. For small clusters, using NFS can be convenient here. E.g., NFS share /home, and have your a.out under /home/mpi/a.out. Then you can mpirun -np 2 --host a,b /home/mpi/a.out.
