Hi everybody.

I have a problem submitting a mpirun mission to the cluster. I have installed openFoam-v1812 in centOS. Now I am trying to do a mpi running on the cluster.

I used the command in file
mpirun -v -machinefile $TMPDIR/machines -np 8 /home/cfd06/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1812/bin/foamJob pimpleFoam -parallel > log.pimpleFoam
And got the error 'pimpleFoam' not found.

But if I used the command directly on the shell
mpirun -np 8 pimpleFoam -parallel
It would work.


Well, I solved this error with a new one came.

/home/cfd06/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1812/platforms/linux64GccDPInt64Opt/bin/pimpleFoam: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Does any one have an idea ? I have been fighting for this error for a long time...

Thank you!

When I start openFOAM on our cluster, I have to load the GCC-Compiler and the OpenMPI module before I load OpenFOAM.

Maybe you have to do that as well.

Second, depending on you PBS system you run-command can vary from the tutorials. On our cluster the run-command in the script is:

mpirun pimpleFoam -parallel > logfile

The machine specifications are taken from the PBS script automatically.
