Subject: Re: [OMPI users] help: sm btl does not work when I specify the same host twice or more in the node list

Can you provide a specific example?

I'm able to do this just fine, for example (with the upcoming OMPI 1.4.5):

mpirun --host svbu-mpi001,svbu-mpi001,svbu-mpi002,svbu-mpi002 --mca btl sm,openib,self ring
