Installing Ubuntu 18.04 on Bluefield-2 failed

For some reasons, I have to install Ubuntu 18.04 instead of 20.04 on Bluefield-2.
I tried to use bfb images from NVIDIA DOCA 软件 | NVIDIA Developer
However ALL Ubuntu 18.04 bfb images are for Bluefield, not Bluefield-2.
Pushing 18.04 bfb always shows ‘cat: connection timeout’ and fails.

So, is there any way to install Ubuntu 18.04 on Bluefield-2? Thanks a lot.

Hello,

Ubuntu 20.04 is the default OS on the Bluefield-2 platform.

For more information on supported DPU operating systems and versions, please see the following:

Thank you,
