Infiniband network device ib0 doesn't exist

Hi, I have installed mlnx_ofed v5.5 (and previously v4.9) on a new rocky8.5 host using “dnf install mlnx-ofed-all”, with a connect-6 ib card. This has installed just fine and I can run ibstat to display the device, but the associated ib0 network device doesn’t exist.

[root@wmc010 net]# ibstat
CA ‘mlx5_0’
CA type: MT4123
Number of ports: 1
Firmware version: 20.29.1016
Hardware version: 0
Node GUID: 0x88e9a4ffff1acbac
System image GUID: 0x88e9a4ffff1acbac
Port 1:
State: Active
Physical state: LinkUp
Rate: 100
Base lid: 462
LMC: 0
SM lid: 220
Capability mask: 0x2650e848
Port GUID: 0x88e9a4ffff1acbac
Link layer: InfiniBand

But there is no ib0 in /sys/class/net. Am I missing something simple?

thanks, Greg

Hello g.hall,

Thank you for posting your inquiry on the NVIDIA Developer Forum - Infrastructure and Networking - Section.

Currently, there is no support for Rocky Linux in MLNX_OFED 5.x GA. Support for Rocky Linux will be available in the upcoming MLNX_OFED 5.6 GA version, available in a few weeks from now.

Thank you and regards,
