Hello,

I installed Intel MPI Library on Microsoft* Windows* HPC Server 2008 by using this instruction:

"Cluster Installation

Go to the head node of the cluster.

Copy the license file to the C:Program Files(x86)Common FilesIntelLicenses on the Intel 64 based systems or C:Program FilesCommon FilesIntelLicenses on the IA-32 based systems. This step is not necessary for the RTO package.

Open command line and go to the folder where the distributive package located.

Execute the following command: w_mpi[-rt]_p_..exe --silent -a install --eula=accept

Wait for completion. "

And IMPI was installed on each node, but if I try to run MPI job from HPC job manager, job fails. If I run the same job on single node (with remote desktop), it's OK.

Hi,

Which job manager are you using? Are you getting any error messages? What are your I_MPI environment variables?

I_MPI_ROOT is the only I_MPI environment variables.

Hi,

That's very strange. Are you running the installer as administrator? Check the md5sum of the installer you downloaded, it should be

fa255198202561c65b30154714a75c46 *w_mpi_p_4.0.3.009.exe

Hello, I installed Intel MPI (Update 3) on cluster. And jobs don't fail anymore. But another problem appeared: tasks need my account and password, this message appeared in error file:

"User credentials needed to launch processes:

account (domain\user) [\]: password:

MPICH2 is unable to manage jobs using credentials with a blank password.

Please enter another account."
I tried to include imput file with account and passord in them, and it's work. How canI solve this problem whitoutsuch imput file for every tasks?

Hi,

If you use the -register option, your username and password will be stored in the registry. You will need torepeat this whenever you update your password. You can also use the -delegate option (or set I_MPI_AUTH_METHOD=delegate) to use domain based authorization if your system supports it. This will automaticallyuse your current logon credentials.
