IB Updates 2
By user12611518 on Jul 21, 2008
Last week we released Solaris InfiniBand Updates 2 through the Sun Downloads site. This replaces the earlier Solaris InfiniBand Updates 1. The new version supports the Mellanox ConnectX HCA as well as the cards supported in the earlier version. The new update is based on Solaris 10 5/08, which is the latest update of Solaris 10. Support for flashing the HCA firmware and for uDAPL (used by Sun's ClusterTools MPI) is also included. Sun options X4217A-Z, X4216A-Z and X5196A-Z are all based on the ConnectX HCA as well as other IHV cards.
Note that further down the line, various components of the download release will make their way into the mainline Solaris releases. But this download release makes them available now for those who are eager to try them out. Whenever components go back into mainline Solaris, they will be removed from this download release series.
Download Solaris InfiniBand Updates 2 here. And, of course, the software is free.
