You should not need to, we have OMPI compiled for openib/psm and run that same install on psm/tcp and verbs(openib) based gear.

All the nodes assigned to your job have qlogic IB adaptors? They also have libpsm_ininipath installed on all of them? This will be required.

Also did you build your openmpi with tm? --with-tm=/usr/local/torque/ (or where ever the path to lib/ is.)

With TM support, mpirun from OMPI will know how to find the CPUs assigned to your job by torque. This is the better way, you can also in a pinch use
mpirun -machinefile $PBS_NODEFILE -np 8 ....

But really tm is better.

Here is our build line for OMPI:

./configure --prefix=/home/software/rhel6/openmpi-1.6.3-mxm/intel-12.1 --mandir=/home/software/rhel6/openmpi-1.6.3-mxm/intel-12.1/man --with-tm=/usr/local/torque --with-openib --with-psm --with-mxm=/home/software/rhel6/mxm/1.5 --with-io-romio-flags=--with-file-system=testfs+ufs+lustre --disable-dlopen --enable-shared CC=icc CXX=icpc FC=ifort F77=ifort

We run torque with OMPI.
