HP Infiniband FDR 2-port 545QSFP Adapter
kernel: mlx5_core 0000:06:00.0: firmware version: 10.10.5052
This adapter was working on RHEL 7.1 and failed after upgrade to 7.3 RedHat support advised:
I find there is at least one other issue reported so far with the 7.3 kernel and the mlx5 modules. It appears the mlx5 module requires a firmware revision of 12.14 or higher. The logging from the yuma host shows a 10.x series firmware. kernel oops with mlx5 when upgrading to RHEL 7.3 https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2694091 https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2694091 The findings in the article above are preliminary but it does hint at issues with the older firmware revision. Definitely reach out to your hardware vendor to confirm whether a newer 12.x series firmware is available for your card and if that causes the issue to resolve itself.
Anybody have any experience with this? What is involved upgrading the firmware? Where do I get it? Mellanox web site? HPE? Do I need to go back to RHEL 7.1 or 7.2 to run the firmware upgrade?
