Hi, I'm looking for a 10Gbit backend for storage drbd replication. I'm expecting to setup infiniband solution connected back to back, this means both nodes will be connected together without a switch. I wonder if I bought two of this cards MHES14-xtc and a cable, I will be able to produce such setup? Link to the cards: http://www.mellanox.com/content/pages.php?pg=products_dyn&product_family=19&menu_section=41 Another question, I intend to use this with infiniband sdr support added to drbd in 8.3.3, and I found this on the spec's of the card. "In addition, the card includes internal Subnet Management Agent (SMA) and General Service Agents, eliminating the requirement for an external management agent CPU." This means I don't need to run openSM in any nodes? I will just need to setup two cards, a cable, connect them, and setup IPoIB to start replicating in 10Gbit?
