Configuring IPoIB Ports in the OS

Configuring IPoIB Ports in the OS

The IP over IB (IPoIB) ports on the MZ620, like Ethernet ports, encapsulate IP packets in IB packets for transmission. The IPoIB ports are identified as ibX in the OS, and can be assigned with IP addresses for transmission over Ethernet. The following describes how to configure IP addresses for the IPoIB ports in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

  1. Run the ifconfig -a command to view information about IPoIB ports.

  2. Configure the IP address.

    • Run the ifconfig ibx [ipaddress] [netmask] command to configure the dynamic IP address.
    • Configure the static IP address.

      To configure static IP addresses, go to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, create a configuration file named ifcfg-ibx, and add the following content to the file:










  3. Run the service network restart command to restart the network service and activate the IPoIB ports.
  4. Run the ifconfig command to verify the configuration.
