Hello Mus,


Thank you for the patience on this matter. 


Please see below update from our engineering team.


We noticed that you also submitted an IPS request that was already answered. We are also sharing below answer from your IPS ticket.


For using RDMA, you have to download the irdman driver from the VMware site.

 After loading the RDMA driver(irdman), The NIC will be automatically loaded in ROCEv2 mode.

Please refer to "Driver setup on Host" section in irdman driver release notes for detailed explanation on how switching between ROCEv2 and iWARP happens.


Feel free to let us know if you have questions and clarifications. 


Awaiting to your reply. 


We will follow up after 3 business days in case we don't hear from you. 


Best regards,
