Hello Team,

I am getting below error on initiator,

kernel: scsi hostxxx: ib_srp: FR pool allocation failed (-12)

system Info:


SRP package: srptools-1.0.3-1.el7.x86_64

kernel: 3.10.0-514.6.1.el7.x86_64

Mellanox HCA:

11:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Mellanox Technologies MT27500 Family [ConnectX-3] [15b3:1003]

Subsystem: Mellanox Technologies Device [15b3:0076]

Product Name: Mellanox CX3 VPI Adapter

[V0] Vendor specific: Mellanox ConnectX3 FDR IB / 40GE Adapter for IBM System x

I want to understand what could cause these kind of errors.

Any help would be much appreciated.



Hi Rupesh,

Did you try to ask the same question at the linux-rdma mailing list? It might be much more efficient as this module is not strictly related to Mellanox hardware.

At the same time, do you use Mellanox OFED or inbox kernel driver? Maybe the issue doesn’t exist in the latest version of the software? The latest MOFED is 4.0 and 4.1 will be released soon.

Hello alkx,

I will check it in linux-rdma mailing list. Using redhat inbox drivers.
