    What cable would I use to connect my MT25218 adapter port to an IS5031 Switch?

      What cable would I use to connect my MT25218 adapter port to an IS5031 Switch?  This would be an InfiniBand connection, and it appears that the cable connector would be a different size/type at each end

          Ye... two pieces with different connectors.. I've seen that before.

          your HCA has a "CX4" connector and the switch has a QSFP connector.

           

          Mellanox sell QSFP to CX4 cables.

          you should look for things like:

           

          1    CX4 to QSFP    MC1204130-001   Passive    Copper    IB DDR   
          2    CX4 to QSFP    MC1204130-002   Passive    Copper    IB DDR   
          3    CX4 to QSFP    MC1204130-003   Passive    Copper    IB DDR   
          5    CX4 to QSFP    MC1204128-005   Passive    Copper    IB DDR

          (on Mellanox Technologies)

           

          BTW, the switch you have could go up to 40Gb/s while your HCA will stop somewhere at 20Gb/s. you might want to get a matching HCA that can go to 40Gb/s.

          just suggesting..

           

           

          i hope it helps.

           

          good luck
