Failed to run an MPI job on Windows HPC 2012 R RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can run the program on two computers not part of our HPC. I start smpd or msmpilauchsvc on both computers and then run the following command on either computer. Everything works well.

    mpiexec -hosts 2 MachineA 1 MachineB 1 MPIApp.exe


    However, I couldn’t run the MPI program on our HPC. I got the following error message.

    ERROR: Failed RpcCliStartMgr error -2147024809

    Aborting: mpiexec on MachineA is unable to connect to the smpd service on MachineB:8677

    Other MPI error, error stack:

    connect failed - The parameter is incorrect.  (errno -2147024809)


    I then tried to manually start smpd (running smpd -d). However, I got an access denied error. Do we really need to manually start smpd on each compute node of a cluster?

    Any suggestions to fix the issue? Thank you very much!
