I believe connectx2 work using the plus kernel, however look for a connectx 3 or 4 either native Ethernet (EN) or a VPI variant, these will be 40Gb and you can use a qsfp to sfp+ convertor, or 40Gb transceiver (auto negotiated to 10Gb). You can change the port profile using mellanox tools or editing the profile in /says. -- Lauz On 9 February 2021 01:45:26 GMT, Victor Padro <vpadro at gmail.com> wrote: >They work, had a NAS running SMB and NFS serving to a couple ESX for >backups using a dual port Connect-X. > >The ones that have their issues are mostly the VPI/IB models which need >to >be reflashed to the ethernet firmware, on servethehome's forums there's >plenty info about this. > >On Sun, Feb 7, 2021, 4:56 AM Strahil Nikolov via CentOS ><centos at centos.org> >wrote: > >> Hi All, >> >> >> can you share what kind of old NICs do you use on CentOS 8 (Stream or >> not , it doesn't matter) without any issues? >> I was looking at ebay and I found some pretty old Mellanox >"ConnectX" >> or "ConnectX-2" but I seriously doubt they will work on CentOS 8. >> >> Any proposals are also welcome.
