Type Management / VPI Cards Configuration

NVIDIA Accelerated IO (XLIO) Documentation Rev 3.20.8 LTS

NVIDIA ConnectX-6, ConnectX-7, BlueField-2, and BlueField-3 ports can be individually configured to work as InfiniBand or Ethernet ports. By default, ConnectX-6/ConnectX-7/BlueField-2/BlueField-3 ports are initialized as InfiniBand ports. If you wish to change the port type, use the mlxconfig script after the driver is loaded.

For further information on how to set the port type in ConnectX-6/ConnectX-7/BlueField-2/BlueField-3, please refer to the MFT User Manual at: https://docs.nvidia.com/networking/category/mft.
