After installing the Intel mpi rte on a 32 bit operating system, the smpd service is not installed. The service entry is missing from the windows services dialog and attempting to invoke mpiexec hangs. On the surface the installer runs to completion. Running smpd -install from the bin directory as a post-step will install the service successfully. This is supposed to happen automatically during the install and causes us significant problems.
Can you guys reproduce this? What is the solution?
- intel mpi rte version4.0.3.010
I have submitted a request to correct this behavior. For now, the only solution is to manually install the SMPD service after the installer has finished. I'll let you know when there is any change in this issue.
