Thanks Peter. Blocking the shared memory layer did the trick for our program too.
For the record, we also have SGI Propack 6 installed (sgi-propack-release-6-sgi600r3).
Is the on-node shared memory support completely blocked? What if the MPI process calls a procedure that uses OpenMP threads, for instance?
The previous message you saw was for our Altix ICE system. Since we started seeing these errors after upgrading to SGI Propack 6, I wonder if there's a bug somewhere in the Propack software or an incompatibility between Open MPI and OFED 1.3 (we had no problems under OFED 1.2). A workaround I stumbled across is to turn off the sm component:
mpirun --mca btl ^sm . . .
That seems to allow our application to run, although I guess at the expense of losing on-node shared memory support.

I am using the same subject of a recent message I found in the list archives of this mailing list:
There was no follow-up on that one, but will add this similar report in case a list member can give us an idea of how to correct it. Or whose bug this could be.
My application behaves as expected when I run it in a single host and multiple MPI nodes of our SGI Altix ICE 8200 cluster with in InfiniBand. When I try the same with multiple hosts, using the PBS batch system the program terminates with a segmentation fault:

Most of the software infrastructure is provided by the Intel propack. Any hints of where to look further into this bug?
Thanks in advance.
