Failing tests Gromacs 2021.1

GROMACS version:2021.1
GROMACS modification: No

Hi, can somone help me in order to resolve those failing tests that gromacs is giving me at the end of the “make check”?

The build that i’m trying to do is for an Arm arch64 cluster, in particular it has 7 nodes, 1 front-end, for each node there’s a ThunderX2 99xx 64 cores, 8 tesla V100 and 2 Tesla T4.
So what i’m trying to do is building my gromacs with this command:

cmake … -DREGRESSIONTEST_DOWNLOAD=ON -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=gcc -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=g++ -DGMX_MPI=on -DGMX_GPU=CUDA -DGMX_SIMD=ARM_NEON_ASIMD -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=on -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/share/gromacs-2021.1-gmx -DFFTWF_LIBRARY=/opt/share/fftw-3.3.9-gromacs-2021.1/lib/libfftw3f.so -DFFTWF_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/share/fftw-3.3.9-gromacs-2021.1/include -DGMX_USE_LMFIT=internal

This build use: Cuda-11.1 - fftw 3.3.9 - gcc-9.3 - openmpi-4.1.1 - cmake-3.18.4

This is the end of my make check

88% tests passed, 9 tests failed out of 73

Label Time Summary:
GTest = 118.93 secproc (67 tests)
IntegrationTest = 29.67 sec

MpiTest = 62.30 secproc (10 tests)
SlowTest = 77.24 sec

UnitTest = 12.02 sec*proc (39 tests)

Total Test time (real) = 175.14 sec

The following tests FAILED:
56 - MdrunTests (ILLEGAL)
57 - MdrunPmeTests (ILLEGAL)
60 - MdrunMpiTests (Failed)
61 - MdrunMpiPmeTests (Failed)
64 - MdrunFEPTests (ILLEGAL)
70 - regressiontests/complex (Failed)
71 - regressiontests/freeenergy (Failed)
72 - regressiontests/rotation (Failed)
73 - regressiontests/essentialdynamics (Failed)

another thing that i’ve noticed is that when i do make install it generates gmx_mpi and if i launch: “gmx_mpi --version” it gives me this warning:

WARNING: There was an error initializing an OpenFabrics device.

Any suggestion or extra advice about my building are also appreciated.

Kind regards, Federico.

Also the out put of gmx_mpi mdrun -version is this:

By default, for Open MPI 4.0 and later, infiniband ports on a device
are not used by default. The intent is to use UCX for these devices.
You can override this policy by setting the btl_openib_allow_ib MCA parameter
to true.
