Note - After creating user partitions, consider modifying the default partition to limited membership for CAs and disabling IPoIB. The reason being that nodes with full membership in different user partitions can communicate with each other through the default partition. See Modify a Partition or Port for an example.
# smpartition start #
# smpartition create -n partition_name -pkey p_key[-flag [ipoib, mtu mtu, rate rate, sl sl, scope scope]][-m defmember]
partition_name is the identifier of the InfiniBand partition.
p_key is the partition key (1 – 7fff or default).
mtu is the value of the MTU.
rate is the throughput of a link (link width + link speed) in Gbps from 2.5, 5, 10, 20, 30 to a maximum of 40.
sl is the service level.
scope is the multicast address scope value (0 – F).
Note - The mtu, rate, sl, and scope parameters are for the multicast group created when ipoib (IP over InfiniBand) is configured for the partition.
defmember is the default membership type (full, limited, or both) for the partition.
Note - If ports are added to the partition without specifying the membership type, the default membership type is applied to the port
