[mpich-discuss] Fatal error in MPI_Init

Good to know MPICH2 is working for you now.
Typically Infiniband adapters allow you to run TCP/IP apps above IB (They support TCP/IP sockets). Looking at the error message that you got it looked like the particular Infiniband adapter did not provide a service provider for TCP/IP apps. Anyway, good to know it is working for you now.
The next release of MPICH2 will include a channel (nd) that supports IB (mpiexec -n 2 -channel nemesis:nd mympipgm.exe would work). You might want to try that out.

I appreciate your quick response!
Finally I could run the "HelloWorld" program!
The problem was that I was not running smpd.exe in the 2nd PC.
Maybe MPICH2 libraries supports the "Mellanox" InfiniBand adapters I have on both PCs.
Now, I can run: mpiexec -hosts 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 HelloWorld.exe
and it functions!!!
I don't know how, but it functions!

> MPICH2 is open-source and available at no cost (free). I can provide a custom build for you, however we recommend all users to use stable releases for production environments. Also, the version that I provide you will be an experimental support for Network Direct (performance tuning is in the works... and I haven't had a chance to run it on a large system to weed out all the bugs.).
> I would recommend buying "Using MPI" (http://www.mcs.anl.gov/research/projects/mpi/usingmpi/) or any other introductory book on getting started with MPI. There is also a lot of material on MPI if you google for it.
> I will provide you a custom build in a couple of days.
