ibdump for Windows

Hello community,

I have an issue with running ibdump in Windows environment. CMD is opened with administrator privileges.

Error looks as described below.

c:\Program Files\Mellanox\MLNX_VPI\IB\Tools>ibdump.exe -d ibv_device1 -o c:\dump\dump_001.cap

My HW is Supermicro X9DRT-HIBQF based system with MCX353A-QCBT card. Card is burned with latest firmware.

OS Windows 2012 Server is installed, WinOF 4.95 is being used.

Feel free to share ideas about what I’m doing wrong. Thank you.

Up.

Any new ideas?

Hello Aleksey,

Thank you for the info, seems like you are running the ibdump on a VM. I would run in on the host rather then on the VM.

Currently it is not supported and not planned to be implemented in the near future.

Sorry about that. Please feel free to reach out to us in case you have additional questions.

Best Regards,

Einav

Hello Aleksey,

Can you please try to run it as 'ibdump -d mlx4_0 -i -o ’ and let me know if it works?

Also please run ‘vstat’ and ‘ibstat’ and share the output.

Thanks,

Einav

Hello Einav,

Thanks for advise. But I’m afraid it does not work.

cmd was opened with admin privileges, output was like:

c:\Program Files\Mellanox\MLNX_VPI\IB\Tools>ibdump.exe -d mlx4_0 -i 1 -o c:\DUMP\ib.pcap

Initiating resources …

searching for IB devices in host

-E- IB device mlx4_0 wasn’t found

-E- failed to create resources

Here are ibstat and vstat output
