Dear Neutron developers,
we are building up an OpenStack (Pike) cluster based on CentOS 7.4 and
Mellanox Ofed 4.2.
As far as we understand Neutron rely on eIPoIB in order to manage
Infiniband networks but unfortunately Mellanox dropped this feature for
the new OFED versions.
Here below the Mellanox support answer about that:
"Please note that as of Mellanox OFED 4.0 eIPoIB is no longer supported
in Mellanox OFED.If you wish to use it we recommend using the 3.4.X
Drivers which still supported this feature."
Obviously we can not use the 3.X version of OFED because is not
supported by RHEL 7.4 and also because we don't want to stick with an
old software version.
Do you have any plan to overcome this issue?
Thank you, regards
