Access denied by smpd manager node RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi

    I'm trying to run a parallel program, written in mpi standard, on two virtual machines (win 7). I've shared a folder between two VMs and copied the projectname.exe file in it. the network of both my Vms is NAT and they successfully ping each other. I've turned off the firewall and run smpd on both VMs. but I get these errors:

    Aborting: Access denied by smpd manager node 'Device IP'

    an issue related to the problem might be this: although My Vms can ping each other, they can't see each other or the shared folder in the network folder.

  • Are you using the same user to run smpd on both machines? The user that runs mpiexec must match the user that runs smpd.

    What version of MS-MPI are you running?
