I can assure you, that for me and others it's working.

Aha, I only set the $OMP_ROOT/etc/openmpi-mca-params.conf to have an entry plm_rsh_agent=foo to have it set for all users automatically.

I didn't played with a source modification though.


Can you try with the original Open MPI 2.0.2 and call ORCA with:

I'm not sure whether Open MPI will resolve the hostnames to their TCP/IP address, or does just a literal comparison - which fails.
