"dapl fabric is not available and fallback fabric is not enabled"

HI Support team,

I try to use  Intel MPI  "with DAPL fabric " to run a molding simulation software on Infiniband/RDMA Fabric.

But get error - "dapl fabric is not available and fallback fabric is not enabled"

 

Detail info:

Cluster  nodes:
CPU: Intel Xeon E5-1620
RAM: 32 GB
NIC: Mellanox ConnectX-5 VPI adapter
Driver: WinOF-2 v2.10.50010
OS: Windows Server 2016 Standard

Test Case1:
Using Microsoft MPI - Microsoft HPC Pack 2016 Update 2 + fixes , the Results is works well on infiniband fabric.

Test Case2:
Replace MS_MPI with Intel MPI(IMPI) - Intel MPI 2018 , the Results - Get error - "dapl fabric is not available and fallback fabric is not enabled" when execute Intel MPI command. My command is as below:

Command: c:\Users\Administrator>"C:\Program Files\Intel MPI 2018\x64\impiexec.exe -genv I_MPI_DEBUG 5 -DAPL -host2 192.168.191.21 192.168.181.22 1 \\IBCN3\Moldex3D_R17]Bin\IMB-MPI1.exe

Please advise,

 

BRs,

Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey,

Most likely that you don't have DAPL ND installed on your machine.

Here is an old example (unfortunately link to DAPL in the article isn't valid so I provided you the latest one above):
