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...
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.
Pretty much as I stand. I've had to put a hold on this project for a bit (production is on mellanox cx3pro).
Can you detail the recovery option ? I'm willing to give it a go. PM me if you feel uncomfortable to post in the open :)
LE: for me, what I'm trying to achieve is make the port 1x40 or...
I also have a pair of 620qsfp28 adapters from hpe. I can't update the firmware to the stock qlogic one - I've only managed to advance a few versions with binaries from HP. Is there a way to crossflash/force flash ?
The reason I ask and the pain is giving me is that it doesn't seem to...
Hi there, since bricking my SX6015 (IB unmanaged) and doing zfs + zvol + scst + srpt -> esxi srp with 126.96.36.199 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...
The latest fw that could be customized (mlx files) that I could find were http://content.mellanox.com/firmware/ConnectX3Pro-rel-2_40_5030.tgz and http://content.mellanox.com/firmware/ConnectX3-rel-2_40_5030.tgz.
If anyone knows of other newer versions, please let me/us know :).
Here are the files from Eong.
PS: the full image can also be downloaded from Nvidia : MLNX-OS PPC M460EX SwitchX v3.6.8012 Image
Once I have a bit of time, I'll post the other files from the thread, so that we can keep them all in one place.
If something happens with the...
It should be fairly straight forward to add support in the firmware - provided you have the mlx file to generate the binary.
Of course, the hardware capability needs to be there (AFAIK 6018/6012 have that on all ports).
If you have anything newer than the 9.4.2000 ver please, share :)
If the card has the QSFP+ interface - advertised as FDR, it will also do 56GbE :)
If the card is only QSFP - advertised as FDR10, it will do only 40GbE.
For the SM, as long as it has an interface (real one) connected to the IB fabric, it'll work.
All of the revisions from A2 and up will do...
