My name is Riddhi and I am a Graduate Research Assistant in the Dept. of 
Physics & Astronomy at Purdue University. About a month ago I correctly 
configured openmpi on my mac and the ‘mpirun -np 2 ./hello.c’ ran correctly. 
But today, it gave me the following error:

[Riddhis-MacBook-Air.local:89582] [[56525,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Bad parameter 
in file orted/pmix/pmix_server.c at line 262

[Riddhis-MacBook-Air.local:89582] [[56525,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Bad parameter 
in file ess_hnp_module.c at line 667


It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is

likely to abort.  There are many reasons that a parallel process can

fail during orte_init; some of which are due to configuration or

environment problems.  This failure appears to be an internal failure;

here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an

Open MPI developer):

  pmix server init failed

  --> Returned value Bad parameter (-5) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

I tried to google this error and the only thing I found was to change the 
TMPDIR name to a shorter name. But I don’t think I understand what it’s asking 
me to do. Kindly help since I am not able to understand what went wrong in one 
month and mpirun stopped working.

Thank you
