Having trouble understanding the installer for this...
Backstory: We have a cluster that is currently running OFED 18.104.22.168 <-- very old in /opt/ofed
Goal: Have old IB 22.214.171.124 in place but also have new IB in place so users can use both.
Downloaded mellanox package (MLNX_OFED_LINUX-3.1-1.0.3-rhel6.7-x86_64) on our test cluster.
Note that all other Mellanox, OEM, OFED, or Distribution IB packages will be removed.
Do you want to continue?[y/N]:y
Install completes and nothing appears touched in /opt/ofed
Next test (newer installer):
Downloaded mellanox package (MLNX_OFED_LINUX-3.2-126.96.36.199-rhel6.7-x86_64) on our test cluster.
Note: Everything under /opt/ofed was removed...
What happened!? Why did it not delete the files in /opt/ofed on the older installer, but did with the new installer?
Also, why can't I prefix the install? Previously, when building just OFED you could add a prefix to the conf file. Now, it says it doesn't support prefix? This means I now have 3 folders in /opt
Is there a way to add a prefix to this type of install that I am missing?
Thanks, and any help is greatly appreciated.
