Mellanox OFED drivers compiled from ISO for kernel 4.18.0-372.26.1.el8_6.x86_64 and installed in RHEL 8.6 Server.
Post installation found perftest-4.5-0.18.gfcddfe0.58112.x86_64 in OFED ISO is non complaint as per Red Hat Security Advisories.
Is there any solution/procedure to install compatible perftest version in kernel 4.18.0-372.26.1.el8_6.x86_64 .
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.6 (Ootpa)
OS-provided utilities, drivers and libraries weren’t compiled against our libraries. The perftest package included with MLNX_OFED and the perftest package included in the OS repository (rhel-8-for-x86_64-baseos-rpms) are very different - though their version numbering is similar.
The RHBA/RHEA advisories (and dnf updateinfo) are assuming the following:
The system still runs on the OS-provided RDMA stack
The system is using OS-provided/built packages
The version number of the package determines whether a package is relevant to that advisory
As the system no longer runs on the OS-provided RDMA stack, the perftest package included with MLNX_OFED is not built against the OS RDMA stack, and the version number is therefore irrelevant, the fixes/enhancements in those RedHat advisories do not apply here.
