    Waiting for link-up on net0...


      I've seen several of my Inifiband card hang at this error. Can you tell me if this is a bug or configuration issue:

      This is installed in a HP G9 Proliant server. I'm attempting to pxe boot off of net1.

          Hello David,


          Correct me if wrong: your issue is that pxe-boot process is not trying/attempted on port net1 because it's stuck at port net0?


          Can you going to flexboot menu of good and bad server after reboot by pressing  Ctrl-B and share comparison.

              You are correct. I'm attempting to pxe boot off of net1 but not because its stuck at net0. I'm required to use net1. But I cannot get passed net0.


              I'm unable to get get into the mellanox configuration screen on the bad server since im going through the HP ILO console. I will update the thread if I can.


              Here is a screenshot of the good server:

                  Issue is fixed. Upgraded the MLX drivers to fw-ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_40_5030-764285-B21_Ax-CLP-8025-UEFI-14.11.34-FlexBoot-3.4.746.bin

                  The issue is fixed in FlexBoot 3.4.746.


                  In the below image i'm not pxebooting but booting from disk. You can see that it no  longer hangs at net0.
