Troubleshooting RSM problems (for Intel MPI)
I have ANSYS EDT 2021 R1 installed on a few computers, along with RSM service and the Intel MPI. Last week I was able to successfully analyze a simulation using multiple machines in a HPC configuration, but this week some of the compute node machines are not cooperating. While running an analysis, message manager tells me
[error] Unable to locate or start COM engine on '[compute node]' : Unable to reach AnsoftRSMService.
And when I go to 'Test Machines' in the analysis configuration, the problem machines say ANS_CANNOT_CONNECTTO_ANSOFTRSMSERVICE
I check for proper MPI behavior on the compute nodes using the following commands in command prompt:
Response: hydra service running on [compute node]
Firewalls on all machines have been turned off.
What troubleshooting steps can I take from here to try and narrow down the problem? I remember when I used to use the IBM MPI, I could use the following command to check for MPI function between two machines:
"%MPI_ROOT%\bin\mpirun" -hostlist localhost:2,[compute node DNS name]:2 "%ANSYSEM_ROOT201%\schedulers\diagnostics\Utils\pcmpi_test.exe"
Is there a similar command for use with the Intel MPI?
Any other suggestions are also appreciated.
