The Intel MPI Library 2.0 is a very old version of the product. The first thing I would advise is to upgrade to the latest Intel MPI Library 3.2 Update 1 for Linux*. You can download the latest package from the Intel Registration Center.
Are you able to log into each node of the cluster without being prompted for a password? That's a requirement for the Intel MPI Library. Does this error always happen for node gtda128? If yes, can you verify the node is functioning correctly? Additionally, can you provide the /tmp/mpd2.logfile_
Finally, you can also try logging into gtda128 and running "ps aux | grep mpd" to make sure there are no existing mpd processes running. If there are, go ahead and "kill -9" them, and try again.
I'm glad everything worked out and your customer is able to use the library successfully. As a final note, I still want to recommend upgrading to the latest version 3.2 Update 1 of the Intel MPI Library, if you or your customer is able to do it.
