We are planning to utilize the existing IB switch inside Exadata and setup the connection with IB card on Widnow 2008 server. It will be a private connection. I know how to get them physically connect, and link status alright. But what are next steps? How do I configure the port and the IB card on the server? Do I need to configure IP's? I have not done so before. Please advice steps and commands? Thank you very much for your help.
