Trouble setting up Infiniband through Network Manager

I’ve just installed clear on a node in my server cluster. I’ve been trying to setup Infiniband on it to no avail, and am currently having an issue with this error:

Error: Connection activation failed: The device could not be readied for configuration
device (ibp4s0): Activation: failed for connection 'IB_HPC'
device (ibp4s0): mtu: failure to set IPv6 MTU
device (ibp4s0): mtu: failure to set IPv6 MTU

(It always says the last line twice.)

This is part of the printout from journalctl after a nmcli con up id IB_HPC. I can provide more information as needed.

(It should be noted I’m ultimately trying to setup IPoIB)

Thanks!

This problem worth creating a GitHub issue.

If you send more detailed output i will have a look at it.

$ nmcli con up IB_HPC
>> Error: Cnnection activation failed: The device could not be readied for configuration
>> Hint: use 'journal ...'
$ journalctl

(I left out some of the info like hostname and time stamps)

I appreciate any help as I’m relatively new to handling Infiniband, thanks!

Have a look here :

Yes, please open an issue at GitHub

I haven’t been able to find those config files (or their equivalents).

I’ve opened an issue: https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/1095
