Re: [Condor-users] MPICH2 wrapper script (mpich2script) for parallel universe

Hi Mark,
Thanks for providing this wrapper script.
I am trying to use this script, after submitting the job, in the
dedicated node under condor/execute/dir_* directory, I am seeing this in
the output file.

setgroups() failed: Operation not permitted

The above line keep added to the output file and the job runs forever,
do you know what might be the problem.

Is the permission or something is missing?
I am using a dedicated user condor-nobody to run condor jobs.
I have the .mpd.conf file in the user home directory.

Please let me know if you think of what might be the problem.

Hi Nkwebi,

I don't know if you still need this, but you can get my copy of 
mp2script at:


Copy and paste it, and rename it as mp2script. A couple of points you 
should bear in mind: I had to put a .mpd.conf file in the home directory

of the user running condor (I use dedicated condor user accounts), but I

also had to set the env var MPD_CONF_FILE in the script, otherwise mpd 
failed to find the file. I also load LD_LIBRARY_PATH with the compiler 
libs I used to build mpich2 (I used ifort/icc 9.1). This script works 
fine with the "cpi" example that gets built by mpich2 in
