ProcedureHow to Configure a IB Port, HCA_SVC, or a VPPA Device

Use the following steps if you want to configure an IB Port, HCA_SVC, or a VPPA device on the system.

The example below illustrates how to configure a VPPA device, but similar steps can be used to configure Port and HCA_SVC devices as well.

  1. Become superuser.

  2. Configure the IB VPPA device.

    For example:

    # cfgadm -c configure ib::1730000007F51,8001,ipib
  3. Verify that the device is connected.

    For example:

    # cfgadm -a ib::1730000007F51,8001,ipib   
    Ap_Id                       Type     Receptacle Occupant   Condition
    ib::1730000007F51,8001,ipib IB-VPPA  connected  configured ok

    Note –

    A cfgadm based configure or unconfigure operation of IB Port and HCA_SVC devices is similar to the preceding examples for an IB VPPA device.
