OFED 5.6 install.pl dracut failures on RockyLinux 8.5

Hi, trying to install OFED 5.6-1.0.3.3 using the recommended install.pl method (with --hpc flag) on RockyLinux 8.5 Generic Cloud image says “Installation successful” but actually has a load of errors like:

dracut: FAILED: /usr/lib/dracut/dracut-install -D /var/tmp/dracut.4gdPhf/initramfs /etc/rdma/modules/infiniband.conf

any suggestions for what’s wrong here. Currently running it again with selinux set to permissive but that’ll take 2 hours so someone might have a better idea in that time!

Hmm. Looks like --all might work, so presumably this is a bug.

Hello Steveb1,

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

Based on the information provided, we are not able to reproduce the issue in our lab. See attached install log.
general.log (74.4 KB)

We used the regular install ISO from Rocky Linux and followed the UM in detail, related to the section on how-to install on Community OS Systems → https://docs.nvidia.com/networking/display/MLNXOFEDv561033/Installing+MLNX_OFED#InstallingMLNX_OFED-InstallationonCommunityOperatingSystemscommunity

Also the ‘dracut’ message is not appearing on our lab system as ‘/etc/rdma/modules/infiniband.conf’ does not belong to MLNX_OFED but is part of the OS INBOX drivers.

Thank you and regards,
~NVIDIA Networking Technical Support
