Firmware for MHJH29 ?

On the Firmware page for ConnectX (here: http://www.mellanox.com/page/firmware_table_ConnectXIB http://www.mellanox.com/page/firmware_table_ConnectXIB ), there’s firmware for many cards… but the MHJH29 (dual, QDR, CX4) is not there, only the MHQH (QSFP insteqd of CX4). They are revision X5.

Anyone know where I could find the latest firmware ?

(Picture of the cards with 3D printed brackets in this thread: )

Thanks in advance & cordially

Could you get the board_id with “ibv_devinfo”

Sure; took a little time as I had to get a system running to put the HCA in ;-)

When I put some IB between systems at home years ago, the PCIe

would limit me to about DDR anyway (one 8x 1.0, and 4x 2.0 …), so

i used DDR boards with available firmware. I have since upgraded

some bits of hardware, and wondering if I couldn’t get QDR on 8x 2.0.

But it seems QDR was mostly deployed with QSFP connector, not

CX4, so the MHJH29 seems a bit of a black sheep from that era…

Thanks for your help !

That’s one verbose lspci :-)

Hello Romain -

Good day to you…

Could you get the board_id with “ibv_devinfo”

And the part number with:

lspci | grep Mell NOTE: the bus:dev.func of the device

lspci -s bus:dev.func -xxxvvv

See:

If you could update this thread with this information it would be very helpful.

thanks - steve

Hello Romain -

I hope all is well…

Do you have an email address so I can send you a link to the file?

thanks - steve

Thank you. I sent you a direct message with my e-mail.

BTW, naive question - any reason the link can’t simply be made public?

(my guess would be, this is somehow a prerelease HCA and there was never any official release for it?)

Cordially & thanks for the great support,

Romain

Thank you for your help. Seems this new firmware is no newer than the one I already have, unfortunately.

Those are 10+ years old cards… no surprise they are difficult to put back in service.

Cordially & thanks again for the great support,
