Not sure if you tried this already but:
Also - want to get your attention to the below in the Release notes:
• Utilities: • OpenSM: InfiniBand Subnet Manager is provided as a sample code. The sample code is intended to allow users to test or bring-up the InfiniBand fabric without a management console / switch (to get started). For cluster production environments, Mellanox's recommendation is to use a Managed Switch or the UFM-SDN Appliance.
Thanks! I suppose it was too much for me to RTFM ;-)
At least it's not as obtuse as the Mellanox Windows firmware update procedure. Who runs their software department? Rube Goldberg's evil twin?!
That said, while we were able to get the Service registered, we are still NOT able to get it started (manually or automatically). We're getting a "Error 1053" timeout.
How do we procure one of the recommended (in the manual) versions of OpenSM? (FabricIT EFM, UTM, or MLNX-OS)
Thanks for the help, it is GREATLY appreciated.
Also, I was under the impression that the MCX353A-FCBT will run in ETHERNET mode, bypassing any requirement for Infiniband management -- is that true? If so, I cannot see any way in the driver to select WHICH mode (IB/EN) to run in. Am I missing something, or am I misinformed?
I presume that would be the easiest solution.
