as usual, I would suggest addressing the mailing list. Would you mind
if I forward this email to the list?
Your point 3 sounds like either an incorrectly set-up cluster or (if
this is a "private" cluster) missing passwordless ssh keys.
I would contact your cluster administrators and show them the output of trying to run something like:
mpirun -np 64 /usr/bin/hostname
which tries to start 64 copies of the "hostname" command. Make sure that 64 is more cores than a single node can provide.
Alternatively you can try and fix this yourself following for example
but do leave the password blank (this implies you should only use this key-pair on the cluster and not do log into the cluster from the outside).
