Subject: [AMBER] parallel amber on cluster

Dear List,

 

I am trying to use parallel amber on a cluster, but it does not work on different nodes. It runs parallel on master node, i.e., on 4 processors when I use the following command:

 

mpirun -np 8 /opt/amber9/exe/sander -O -i min.in -o min.out -p egf-egfr_solvated.prmtop -c egf-egfr_solvated.inpcrd -r min.rst -ref egf-egfr_solvated.inpcrd

 

This is to run sander on sum of 8 processors on two nods. Here is part of the error message that I get:

 

  Unit 5 Error on OPEN: min.in

 

  Unit 5 Error on OPEN: min.in

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

It seems that [at least] one of the processes that was started with

mpirun did not invoke MPI_INIT before quitting (it is possible that

more than one process did not invoke MPI_INIT -- mpirun was only

notified of the first one, which was on node n0).

 

mpirun can *only* be used with MPI programs (i.e., programs that

invoke MPI_INIT and MPI_FINALIZE). You can use the "lamexec" program

to run non-MPI programs over the lambooted nodes.

Ö..

If I do the same command using just 4 processors on my master node it works perfectly. I donít understand what I am doing wrong.

I appreciate it if you could kindly help me with this.

 

Cheers, Siavoush
