I have two Mellanox MHGH29-XTC InfiniBand cards that I would like to use to connect my ZFS file server running Debian, to my workstation running windows 10 using ipoib.
I have had the cards and the cable working on a spare disk running Debian connected to my workstation with full speeds using iperf, so I know the hardware works.
The issue is on windows I can not get the cards to show as anything other than network cable unplugged. The cable is plugged in and the static ip address has been setup, as well as opensm running on my server, this is the same as before the only thing that has changed is the OS.
I have tried everything I can think to try to get this to work but for what ever reason on windows I cant get it to show the link as up. I also cant seem to find a good way to troubleshoot what is going on as I cant simply look at the kernel log like I could under Linux .
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as at this point I feel like I am going mad.
