RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: rhel-system-roles-1.18.0-1.el8
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.Users can create connections with IPoIB capability using the `network` RHEL System Role The `infiniband` connection type of the `network` RHEL System Role now supports the Internet Protocol over Infiniband (IPoIB) capability. To enable this feature, define a value to the `p_key` option of `infiniband`. Note that if you specify `p_key`, the `interface_name` option of the `network_connections` variable must be left unset. The previous implementation of the `network` RHEL System Role did not properly validate the `p_key` value and the `interface_name` option for the `infiniband` connection type. Therefore, the IPoIB functionality never worked before. For more information, see a README file in the `/usr/share/doc/rhel-system-roles/network/` directory.

Description Wen Liang 2022-05-16 17:29:34 UTC
Description of problem:

This is more like the RFE than an bugfix. The following are the sub-tasks:

1. Add the infiniband setting description, the integration test.
2. Improve the infiniband setting validation.
3. Change the default value of `p_key` setting.

Comment 1 Rich Megginson 2022-05-16 18:02:22 UTC
We will also need to add `--skip-tags tests::infiniband` to our downstream CI tests.

Comment 8 Zhiqian Guan 2022-06-02 11:05:00 UTC
Ran test playbook on an RHEL8.7 control host, target RHEL7.9, 8.6, 8.7, 9.0, 9.1 as managed nodes, result looks fine, please see detailed logging in the attachment

Same test playbook issue as I mentioned at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2086965#c6, I'll also open another bug to track the test playbook issue, set this to VERIFIED as feature itself is good.

Comment 12 Wen Liang 2022-08-22 12:32:10 UTC
