Each host will have a VNIC-specific configuration file for the VNICs it will host. Each line of the MAC address file becomes a VNIC-specific configuration file. Repeat this procedure ofr each host in the InfiniBand fabric.
Note the row numbers in column one.
DEVICE=name HWADDR=mac BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes BXADDR=string BXEPORT=connector VNICVLAN=vlan_id VNICIBPORT=device:port
name is ethXX and XX is column one of the host MAC address file.
mac is column two of the host MAC address file.
string is column six of the host MAC address file.
connector is column eight of the host MAC address file.
vlan_id is column seven of the host MAC address file.
Note - The VNICVLAN parameter is optional.
device is column four of the host MAC address file.
port is column five of the host MAC address file.
DEVICE=eth1 HWADDR=00:30:48:7d:de:e4 BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes BXADDR=0003ba000100c70b BXEPORT=0A-ETH-1 VNICVLAN=0 VNICIBPORT=mlx4_0:1
For example, ifcfg-eth1.
