Howto enable PFC for iSER on LAN-40G2SF-MLX?

Post by Rol » Wed Dec 30, 2020 6:09 pm

I installed two LAN-40G2SF-MLX cards in my ES1686dc. I want to use iSER in my storage network which is within one subnet, therefore I need only everything for RoCE v1 and not v2. I activeded PFC so far on my VMware 7.0 host and on my switch.

So I need PFC activeded on my LAN-40G2SF-MLX cards, how can I do this?

Thanks for any help.

You need to ensure your iSCSI switches can support iSER over RDMA.
