Hi Mellanox community,
System: Dell PowerEdge C6320p
OS: CentOS 7.3
IB Controller: Mellanox Technologies MT27700 Family [ConnectX-4]
I’m having a problem on installing MLNX_OFED_LINUX-4.1-18.104.22.168-rhel7.3-x86_64 on Dell PowerEdge C6320p. The problem is that the installation of mlnx-fw-updater-4.1-22.214.171.124 fails with the following error message:
The firmware for this device is not distributed inside Mellanox driver: 03:00.0 (PSID: DEL2180110032)
To obtain firmware for this device, please contact your HW vendor.
As the message suggested, I went to the HW vendor(DELL)'s website, and found this download link http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/drivers/driversdetails?driverId=X0TT7 , which is redirected to Mellanox’s site where I got the MLNX_OFED_LINUX-4.1-126.96.36.199-rhel7.3-x86_64. I asked Dell Tech Support and was told to try an older version, 4.0-188.8.131.52, instead, and then ended up getting the same error. That’s why I’m here, asking the question to the community, hoping someone knows the solution.
I would appreciate any feedback.
