[torqueusers] Torque is not handling jobs to nodes

I have a situation:

> qsub -l nodes=6:ppn=2 /path/to/mpi_program

where "mpi_program" is:

/path/to/mpirun -np 12 /path/to/my_program

-- Everything went to run on head node (one time on the first compute node).  Jobs can be done anyway.

While the mpirun can run on its own by specifying a "-machinefile", it is pointed out by Glen, and also on this web site http://wiki.hpc.ufl.edu/index.php/Common_Problems that it's not a good idea to provide machinefile since it's "already handled by OpenMPI and Torque".

But in my case why the OpenMPI and Torque is not handling the jobs to nodes?
