3617xs - 6.2.2, is there a more current infiniband module?

Recommended Posts

I have a connectx-2 which I am trying to enable for infiniband along side the rest of my IB network.

 

Though I do have many IB / MLX modules running in xpenology (Copied below) I can't seem to enable ib_ipoib properly, and as such, cannot assign an IP to my IB device, and generally do not see ib0 as an active device (ls /sys/class/net).

 

Out of desperation since a few days ago when I started, following other old threads in the forum, I managed to force a switch to eth mode from IB, which does create an eth1 device, but I can't otherwise get it to connect to the rest of the network (unmanaged IB switch, with opensm running on another machine.)

 

As well, I am hopeful to keep the device in IB mode instead of Eth. I have read a half dozen forum threads on the topic from over the years. Many reference precompiled modules and other downloadable resources, but so far I have yet to find a link that wasn't broken. 

 

I have also found the rather long driver extension thread for 6.2.2, however, it does not mention infiniband in the 30 pages of posts  (according to a search) so I am unsure that it would help.

 

Xpenology doesn't appear to have the standard IB tools, and I am currently unclear as to how I would go about adding them.

 

 

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

dsm for 3617 comes with mlx4_ib.ko, mlx5_ib.ko so no need to add them to the extra.lzma
