suppose you run from mycomputer
mpiexec -n 11 \\mycomputer\c$\cpi.exe whit ssm channel enabled.
You will have 11 machines trying to connect to the UNC path
\\mycomputer. There is a knowledge base article about Windows XP
accepting no more than 10 connections from remote machines. These
connections are of any type: pipes, mapped drives and more. For
reference, see http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314882
This does not mean that the cluster size is limited to 10 XP
machines. It just means that the path from which the test is launched
should not belong to any XP node.
