Hello @ppinheiro,

Thank you for posting your query on our community. Please try the following options to help resolve the issue,

  1. Use rnmod to remove modules rpcrdma and svcrdma, then try to install again
  2. Use /etc/init.d/openibd force-stop and then install again

Hope this helps.

Thank & Regards,
