    Error while "rxe_cfg start"

      Hi, I have an SoftRoCE setup on CentOS 6.6 and its throws an error related to default_roce_mode. I have the configfs mounted and even if I try to add the version manually it throws the same error.


      Here are the details -

      # cat /etc/*release

      CentOS release 6.6 (Final)

      $ ibv_devices

          device                 node GUID

          ------              ----------------

          rxe0                2a6ed4fffe0feba7


      # mount




      none on /sys/kernel/config type configfs (rw)

      # rxe_cfg start

      IBOE V2

      tee: /sys/kernel/config/rdma_cm/rxe0/default_roce_mode: Invalid argument

        Name  Link  Driver  Speed  NMTU  IPv4_addr      RDEV  RMTU

        eth0  no    tg3            1500

        eth1  no    tg3            1500

        eth2  no    tg3            1500

        eth3  no    tg3            1500

        eth4  no    tg3            1500

        eth5  yes   tg3            1500  rxe0  1024  (3)



      Trying to add the version manually -


      # mkdir /sys/kernel/config/rdma_cm/rxe0

      # cat /sys/kernel/config/rdma_cm/rxe0/default_roce_mode

      IB/RoCE V1

      # echo IBOE V2 > /sys/kernel/config/rdma_cm/rxe0/default_roce_mode

      bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument


      Can you please share the possible cause of this error.
