How to enable IP over infiniband on ISO5022 switch

I am considering purchasing an infiniscale iso5022 switch to use for testing, and I am trying to figure out how to enable IP over infiniband on this switch. I am completely new to IB, so please make your answers as easy as possible. Thanks!

On Linux, you run the ib_ipoib module. It will be setup when you install OFED. Then just assign an address to your IB interface, and it will start working.

Hello Ian,

Many thanks for posting your question on the Mellanox Community.

Tom already provided information on how-to enable IPoIB.

As an addition, you need to run a SubnetManager in your fabric. You can run the SM on one of the nodes in your fabric. Please follow the instructions in the MLNX_OFED UM on how-to run the SM on the node →

Many thanks,
