Verify RoCE Cabling on Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M-2 and X8M-8 Servers (Doc ID 2587717.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2020

Applies to:

Exadata Database Machine X8-2/X8M-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Exadata Database Machine X8-8/X8M-8 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance X8/X8M Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version 19.3.1.0.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

Due to the lack of inherent in-band fabric discovery capability in the InfiniBand Transport Layer systems based on a RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) Network Layer network in Exadata Database Machine X8M-2/X8M-8 and Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance X8M and later hardware, we created the verify_roce_cables.py to determine if the rack is cabled correctly.
