I have recently acquired a server that I will be using for distributed simulations. However, I was wondering how do I determine which MPI version the server is compatible with?
The reason that I am asking this is that I acquired it from a reseller who buys old computer equipment (for those wondering, it is an IBM blade center. Some of the blades have DDR2 installed and others are dated around 2011) and resells it. There was one professor in my university who was using an older server. He was trying to code for distributed systems but he was saying that it was not compatible with the latest version of MPI (he also said that he was having a hard time getting older versions of MPI working). So, my question is how can I make sure that the version of MPI I use is compatible with the server?
