opensm causes server to reboot


we have a mellanox switch and we want to run opensm on a CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)

If i start the service, the server reboots without any messages.

Is it possible to debug opensm and is this the right place for my question or do you have any hints for me?



Hi Volker,

Is your Mellanox switch managed ? Does it run OpenSM ?

In any case, starting up OpenSM on a Linux server, should not cause the server to reboot (regardless of whether or not there are other SMs running in the subnet). What is the OpenSM version ? How is it started ?
