Subject: [OMPI users] ORTE_ERROR: orte_ess_base_open failed
From: Shanthini Kannan (shanthinick_at_[hidden])

I am running mpptest over Open MPI (v1.5.4).
I get the following error saying component "env" in Framework "ess" is not
found. Am I missing something? I am new to MPI and any help you can offer
is appreciated.

A requested component was not found, or was unable to be opened. This
means that this component is either not installed or is unable to be
used on your system (e.g., sometimes this means that shared libraries
that the component requires are unable to be found/loaded). Note that
Open MPI stopped checking at the first component that it did not find.

Host: AV8
Framework: ess
Component: env
[AV8:05354] [[INVALID],INVALID] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file
runtime/orte_init.c at line 120
It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_init; some of which are due to configuration or
environment problems. This failure appears to be an internal failure;
here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an
Open MPI developer):

  orte_ess_base_open failed
  --> Returned value Error (-1) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS
