|Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch HTML Document Collection for Firmware Version 2.0|
If you plan to associate a VNIC with a VLAN, you also must partition the InfiniBand fabric and provide a partition key. If the VLAN is associated with the default P_Key (7fff), you need not create the default partition, for it already exists.
Note - Do not use VLAN identifiers 1 or 4095.
Note - Due to hardware limitations for MultiCast groups, there is a maximum of 1000 VLANs.
If MAC address will not be associated with a VLAN, the partition key will be default.
Note - When you associate a MAC with a VLAN, the GUID respective to the MAC must be a member of the partition associated with the partition key.
An example entry in the gateway MAC address file might look like this:
0A-ETH-1 0003ba000100c70b 00:30:48:7d:de:e4 3 default
For this example:
0A-ETH-1 is the gateway connector.
0003ba000100c70b is the HCA port GUID.
00:30:48:7d:de:e4 is the MAC address.
3 is the VLAN identifier.
default is the partition key.
