Installing the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA Application

This section describes the following topics.

To certify an InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter (HCA), you must install the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA application and the Oracle HCTS application on the TM and SUT systems.

Extracting the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA File Content

The Oracle HCTS 5.8 IB HCA archive is a tar file from which you need to extract the contents. The name of the downloaded file is hcts. 5.8.ib-${ARCH}.tar.gz. The ${ARCH} value represents the processor type, that is SPARC or i386. For example, the IB HCA package for x86 platform is named as hcts. 5.8.ib-i386.tar.gz.

To extract the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA file content, type the following command on each machine.

# gzip -cd hcts.5.8.ib-$(ARCH).tar.gz | tar xvf -

The contents are extracted to a directory called hcts.5.8.ib-${ARCH}, which is placed in the directory where you have downloaded the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA.

The hcts.5.8.ib-${ARCH} directory contains the following files.

  • hcts.5.8.ib.README

  • SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package

  • SUNWstc-dtet package

Installing the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf Package

Be sure to read the hcts. 5.8.ib.README in the /hcts_extract_dir/hcts. 5.8.ib-${ARCH} directory before you install the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package. Installation verifies that no previous version of the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf exists on your system. If SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf is already installed on the system, uninstall the existing version.

On each system, perform the following steps to install the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package.

  1. Log in as a root by using the su command.

    # su
  2. Add the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package.

    # /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d . SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf
