Syntax Description

ib-single-switch

Enables InfiniBand switch profile
All network interfaces link protocol set to InfiniBand

ib-no-adaptive-routing-single-switch

Notes

  • This command requires approval because reboot is performed and all configuration is removed

  • This command deletes all switch configuration (keeping configuration necessary for network connectivity such as interfaces, routes, and ARP) and resets the system

  • System profile “ib-no-adaptive-routing-single-switch profile” is the default profile for InfiniBand switches

  • The parameter “adaptive-routing-groups” is only available when “adaptive-routing” is configured

  • Refer to the “port type” command in order to change the link protocol

  • System profile “ib split-ready” must run together with num-of-swids 1

  • IB router and adaptive routing are enabled only if specified but cannot be enabled at the same time

  • IB router only works when adaptive routing is disabled.

  • In NDR systems, the maximum number of SWIDs is 8.
