    More custom Mellanox firmware tips

    I thing the last cx2 (sometimes also confused with cx1 - only revision number is different) has a latest of 2.10.720 that can be generated from mellanox. a 2.11.x might be with some modifications done by sun/oracle. I wouldn't expect someone from oracle jumping in and at least shedding some...

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    I've bricked a 6015 this way ... see if you have a console port to get to some kind of bootloader, or try and see if it has a recovery switch to try and flash it over IB. The guide here for 6xxx managed switches could provide you with valuable hints for what to try and how.

    CX3 iSER

    Hi there, since bricking my SX6015 (IB unmanaged) and doing zfs + zvol + scst + srpt -> esxi srp with 1.8.2.5 drv on CX3, I've had to move to an ethernet setup - a friend borrowed me an arista w 100G ports - couldn't refuse :). I've had countless bad hours because of the cx3 iser hang bug. I...

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    I can confirm that a breakout dac cable (mine is cisco branded) works - 1/10g possible. I haven't tried a media converter (sfp->rj45) yet.
