RE: Kickstart over OpenIB?



I think as long as your ib card will pxe boot, things may work normally.
If we ensure the vmlinuz + initrd.img and the has the ib drivers in it,
we should be good to go.  Just need to make sure the installed kernel
has the openib drivers as well.

There is no code to support any of the infiniband stuff in anaconda
right now.  And a fair bit of work is probably required from what I
understand about IB
