Subject: Re: [OMPI users] [EXTERNAL] Re: What version of PMI (Cray XE6) is working for OpenMPI-1.6.5?

Thanks for the help. I can run a job using openmpi, assigning a signle
process per node. However, I have been failing to run a job using
multiple MPI ranks in a single node. In other words, "mpiexec
--bind-to-core --npernode 16 --n 16 ./test" never works (apron -n 16 works
fine). DO you have any thought about it?
