We recently bought several Dell Poweredge C6420 with Omnipath adapters series 100. They are installed with Debian 9 (Stretch). Apparently, the Intel Omni-Path Fabric Software is supported only on some versions of RHEL (and friends such as Centos) ans SUSE. Is there any way (even not supported) to install the Omni-Path Fabric software on Debian 9?
Thank you for your help.
Regarding your request for Omnit Path support on Debian 9 (Stretch).
If there is anything else we can help please feel free to ask. At this moment there is only support for Debian 8. But I am working with the Service Team in charge of Omni path.
Allow me a couple of days to try and gather more information.
Our Fabric Software department is working now to release a new version compatible with Linux – Debian 9. They expect to have it available within four weeks.
Ok, thanks a lot. I can wait few weeks. Do I understand correctly that the Intel Fabric Software for Debian is avalaible at?:
Yes, you are right; Intel will publish the Debian 9 release on this page:
