Do you have some nodes that are configured with "eth0" pointing to your 10.x network, and other nodes with "eth0" pointing to your 192.x network? I have found that having interfaces that share a name but are on different IP addresses sometimes causes OMPI to miss-connect.

That is exactly true. On some nodes eth0 is 1Gig and on others 10Gig
and vice versa. Is that going to be a problem and is there a
workaround? I mean 192.168 is always the 10Gig and 10.0 the 1 Gig but
the correspondence with eth0 vs eth1 is not consistent. I'd have liked
that but couldn't figure out a way to guarantee the order of the eth
