Hi,
when I start the parallel execution of the damBreakFine, I receive the fellowing message:

One of the processes started by mpirun has exited with a nonzero exit

If your process did not finish in error, be sure to include a "return

What is the problem? for n I use (2,1,1) andmy simulation is under 2 PCs

Hi,
Thanks I resolve my problem by decompose the same case in the second Pc.
But, I can't understand a think. why should I install the case on both Pcs and is it necessary to decompose it in the 2 pcs also.

Do they have the same file-system? The same case directory must be available on both machines, otherwise the second machine would not know what to do.

As Hakan explained, if you have a single file system that can be seen by all the nodes in the cluster, you will not need to do anything twice. In my case this is done by setting one of the machines as file server for the others. Don't ask me how to do that since our adminstrator did it for us :-). Good luck!

Hi,
Yes I used the NFS server and share the run FOAM directory with the other Pcs.
but, it doesn't work. Then I decide to install the OpenFOAM on the second Pc and do the same job twice.

Hi,

I did the type of testing, that is connecting two PCs each has Fedora Core 3 installed, about 5 months ago. I lost one PC, so unfortunately I cannot re-do it and write down all the steps. But, here are few key things I remember that are important:

1. One PC will serve as a file server. You do decomposePar on this PC to create the two folders for processor0 and processor1.
2. hostname needed to be correct. Make sure that you can ping both the IP and machine names from each other.
3. I had NFS running and setup ssh so that both PCs can logon to each other without a password (need public/private key dsa key pair generated and copied to the right place).
4. on the client PC, I believe that I have OpenFOAM installed. The case file does not reside on the client PC. I created a new folder with the same path/folder name as the server PC for the case to be run. Mount this folder to the folder on the file server.

All these steps did the trick (these are from memory, I may miss some details).

Hi,
Thanks you all,
Pei, the ssh server should be in running state else the (LAM/MPI) doesn't work.
for the other steps that you have mentionned, I will try and if I find any problems I will be back.

By the way, I want to use the interFOAM solver in the modeling of the motion of bubbles in tube.

I started by taking the geometry of bubblefoam case bu I find problems how to impose my bubble and when (problems with gamma field).
Any help on this subject?!!!!
I need to perform some simulations with OpenFOAM in order to decide if I will decide to chose it for coupling with other codes.

thanks
