Check Link Status LEDs

The link status LEDs are located at the InfiniBand connectors of the rear panel. See Rear Status LEDs.

  1. Visually inspect the link status LEDs.
  2. Compare what you see for a particular link to the following table.
    State and Meaning
    On – Link established.

    Off – No link or link down.

    Flashing – Symbol errors.
