I am trying to have my hosts connected on my infiniband network with mlx5 cards in connected mode but IPoIB is not working.
CONNECTED MODE is mandatory in my environment.
I disabled IPoIB enhanced mode
options ib_ipoib ipoib_enhanced=0
in this way I configured ib0 as a connected mode IPoIB
ib0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65520 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 256
link/infiniband 80:00:00:86:fe:80:00:00:00:00:00:00:50:6b:4b:03:00:42:e7:b4 brd 00:ff:ff:ff:ff:12:40:1b:ff:ff:00:00:00:00:00:00:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 172.21.52.144/22 brd 172.21.55.255 scope global ib0
while ibping works, ping itself does not work and I Am not able to use the interfaces.
server 1: 172.21.52.144
server 2: 172.21.52.145
they cannot ping each other while they can ibping each other.
my systems are RHEL 7.5 3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.x86_64
here is the info of my mlx5 card.
how can I enable connected mode to work on these interfaces?
