Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problem running mpirun with ssh on remote nodes -Daemon did not report back when launched problem
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

Open MPI opens random TCP sockets during the startup phase of MPI processes -- mostly from the "orted" helper process that is started on each node (or VM) back to the initiating mpirun process.

Do you have firewalling or other TCP blocking software running? Or are the appropriate TCP routes setup between all your VMs?

But when i launch mpirun from the Dom 0 on one or more guests there is no response from the guests and I am eventually having to kill the process which reports saying
