Patches created against dhcp-4.1.0p1-15.el6
IPoIB-dhcp-4.1.0p1-15.tar.gz includes the following patches:
These patches were created against dhcp-4.1.0p1-15.el6
Tested on build RHEL6.1-20110420.0:
[root@rdma3 ~]# rpm -qa | grep dhc
Testing environment: Two machines connected to an IB switch, the first one configured as a DHCP server listening on ib0 interface, the second one was a DHCP client.
[root@rdma3 ~]# lspci | grep InfiniBand
0c:00.0 InfiniBand: QLogic, Corp. IBA6120 InfiniBand HCA (rev 02)
0e:00.0 InfiniBand: QLogic, Corp. IBA6120 InfiniBand HCA (rev 02)
After running "dhclient ib0" on the client machine, an IP address from the server was received and network interface ib0 was set based on the server configuration, I was able to login via ssh from the server to the client and vice-versa.
Moving to VERIFIED.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
The dhcp package now provides support for IPoIB (IP over InfiniBand) interfaces.
