[Bioclusters] new on using clusters: problem running mpiblast

I am new on using clusters.

I have just installed mpiblast 1.4.0 with ncbi toolbox (June 2005)
from source codes on a linux cluster [x86_64/x86_64 (GNU/Linux), CentOS].
The installation seemed to be successful.

Now when I try the following:

 > /opt/openmpi.gcc/bin/mpirun -np 14
       /usr/local/bin/mpiblast -p blastn
                               -i /raid/pub/ncbi/blast/db/BTrsSNP
                               -d bta.genome.chr
                               -o out1
                               -e 0.0000000001
                               -W 38 -v 1 -b 1

and immediately got following errors:
MPI_ABORT invoked on rank 0 in communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD with errorcode 0
mpirun noticed that job rank 1 with PID 28131 on node xxxx.xxxxxx.xxx 
exited on signal 15 (Terminated).
12 additional processes aborted (not shown)

Maybe I am missing something obvious?  Could anyone point to the 
right place for tracing the problem? ...
