When you install the BXOFED software, any previous installations of OFED or BXOFED software are removed. Configuration files are not removed.
Note - If you are installing the BXOFED software on a cluster, install the software onto one of the cluster nodes, then install the .rpm files in the OFED-1.5.1/RPMS on all remaining cluster nodes using cluster-aware tools.
The script begins. Interactive menus direct you through the installation process. During the installation, two configuration files are created:
ofed.conf – contains the names of the software modules installed and the configuration settings chosen during the installation.
ofed_net.conf – contains the IPoIB configuration settings chosen during the installation.
The script finishes. This information is found in the respective locations:
Man pages are installed in /usr/share/man.
Documentation is installed under the /usr/share/doc directory.
IPoIB configuration information is installed under the /etc/sysconfig/network* directory.
The openibd daemon is installed under the /etc/init.d directory.
BXOFED commands are located in the /usr/bin and /usr/sbin directories.
BXOFED software installation information is displayed with the /etc/infiniband/info script.
# ./BXOFED-1.5.1-1.6.3/install.pl -c path/ofed.conf -n path/ofed_net.conf
where path is the directory path to the ofed.conf and ofed_net.conf files.
