If you ever need to bring up a computer with InfiniBand networking capabilities and diagnostic tools, without even going through any installation on its hard disk, then please read on. In this article, I am going to talk about how to boot a computer over the network using PXE and have IPoIB enabled. Of course, the computer must have a compatible InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter (HCA) installed and connected to your IB network already.

In the context of Oracle's Engineered Systems, I am going to explain how an InfiniBand network is actually created using various building blocks of hardware and software. Includes a very basic view of a host participating in IB network and their connectivity to achieve redundancy and high availability.
