4.2.2.3 Installing the Oracle-Supported OFED Packages from ULN if the Default OFED Packages Are Not Already Installed

Note

This procedure assumes that you have registered the system with ULN. See Registering an Oracle Linux 6 or Oracle Linux 7 System.

To install the Oracle-supported OFED packages from ULN on a minimally installed Oracle Linux 7 system on which the default OFED packages have not been installed:

  1. Subscribe the system to the ol7_x86_64_optional_latest, ol7_x86_64_UEKR3_OFED20, ol7_x86_64_UEKR3, and ol7_x86_64_latest channels on ULN. (By default, the ol7_x86_64_UEKR3 and ol7_x86_64_latest channels are enabled when you register an Oracle Linux 7 system with ULN.)

  2. Edit /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/rhnplugin.conf and add the following lines to the end of the file:

    [ol7_x86_64_UEKR3_OFED20]
    priority=20 
  3. Install the yum-plugin-priorities package from the ol7_x86_64_optional_latest channel:

    # yum install yum-plugin-priorities
  4. Install Oracle-supported OFED packages such as ibutils, libibcm, librdmacm-devel, librdmacm-utils, librdmacm, opensm, opensm-libs, and srptools from the ol7_x86_64_UEKR3_OFED20 channel as required, for example:

    # yum install ibutils
