ConnectX-3 not going up in Centos 6.4 (and SL6.4)

Supermicro AOC-CIBF-M1 card… I looked for and didn’t find newer firmware already (nor running mlxburn worked, it asks for a .ini) …

Same switch SX6025, same cables, same firmware (2.10.4700) same system image (the nodes are stateless) and 4 are in FDR10 and two in FDR…

ohh… (Sorry), forgot to ask - what SW/FW level the switch is running with?

Just remembered… with flint you can query a card to extract the .ini file settings it already has:

$ flint -d [PCI_bus_address_of_card] dc > somefile.ini

For example, with an older card in a test box here I get its PCI bus address first:

$ lscpi | grep Mell

01:00.0 InfiniBand: Mellanox Technologies MT25418 [ConnectX VPI PCIe 2.0 2.5GT/s - IB DDR / 10GigE] (rev a0)

The 01.00.0 is the PCI address of the card in the test box. Then I use flint to extract the .ini file settings from the card:

$ sudo flint -d 01:00.0 dc > somefile.ini

The .ini file is just a normal text file:

$ cat somefile.ini
