Buenos Dias, tengo un problema al instalar la tarjeta infiniband, la misma aparece en el administrador de dispositivos como no instalada, estoy usando Windows Server standar 2012 r2, y estoy instalando los driver MLNX_VPI_WinOF-5_35_All_win2012R2_x64 el cual debería de reconocerla sin embargo no lo reconoce, he desabilitado los Drivers Enforced Signature, he utilizado un Driver Pack Solution, sin embargo sigue sin reconocer la tarjeta, habra algun parche o programa para hacer que la reconozca? otro dato esta conectada en un puerto PCI-E y el servidor es un HP proliant dl360g6 alguna informacion adicional que pueda dar?

The Mellanox technical forums are mostly conducted in English. We will appreciate if you could post English only questions/comments.
I run a quick translation on your post. hopefully it is accurate enough:
Good morning, I have a problem installing the card infiniband*, it appears in the device manager as not installed, I am using Windows Server* standar 2012 r2, and I am installing the drivers MLNX_VPI_WinOF-5_35_All_win2012R2_x64 which should recognize it but does not recognize it , I disabled the Enforced Signature Drivers, I used a Driver Pack Solution, but still does not recognize the card, will there be any patch or program to make it recognize? another data is connected on a PCI-E port and the server is an HP proliant dl360g6 any additional information you can give?
If you’ll have a look at the HO Qlogic 4x QDR IB PCI-e G2 HCA overview (see: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01951526 https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01951526 ) then you’ll find that this card is based on the Mellanox Connectx-2 IB technology, in which unfortunately is not supported by Mellanox WinOF-driver v5.35 (supports only ConnectX-3 / Connect-X 3 Pro ) - see: http://www.mellanox.com/related-docs/prod_software/MLNX_VPI_WinOF_Release_Notes_Rev_5.35.pdf http://www.mellanox.com/related-docs/prod_software/MLNX_VPI_WinOF_Release_Notes_Rev_5.35.pdf
WinOF driver v4.80 is the last Mellanox driver that supports ConnectX-2 based adapters over Windows 2012 R2. Can be retrieved from Mellaox website
In case adapter is still not revealed properly by “device-manager” then suggesting to apply to HP/Qlogic and ask to advice you if & what driver & FW they can supply to that adapter.
Generally speaking – Mellanox already declared Connectx-2 adapters as EOL
Thanx for the info but still i cant find any driver i also talk to HP and tehy dindt gave me an answer but still thank you!
