See http://www.sysadmin.hep.ac.uk/wiki/ProcessesOnBatchNodes

You could also disable rsh/ssh to nodes if the execution nodes share file 
system with the submission node, you rely on $usecp in mom_priv/config and 
you use mpiexec (which doesn't require rsh/ssh). However, allowing rsh/ssh 
access to nodes aids users in troubleshooting their jobs, so I wouldn't 
recommend this solution.
