Leaf Switch dm02sw-ib2.example.com with GUID 0x2128469d62a0a0has fewer than 8 links to compute nodes
It has 5 links (14A 13A 13B 12B 5A) to compute nodes
                                                               [ERROR]

 

However  an investigation  usng listlinkup output and ibnetdiscover does not show any cable connectivity issues.

ibnetdiscover  output has entries like the following 


[28]    "H-00212800013f1346"[2](212800013f1348)                 # "dm02db07 HCA-1" lid 62 4xQDR

 

Ideally the correct entry  in ibnetdiscover should be like the following. In the previous output IP address is misisng.


[12]    "H-00212800013f22d6"[1](212800013f22d7)                 # "dm02db04 S 192.168.10.26 HCA-1" lid 44 4xQDR
