Because they both require a different distribution of OFED, which are mutual 
exclusive to install.
in theory if you deploy plain OFED it might work, but that will be hard to find 
somebody to support.

    I must admit, I'm curious as to why one cannot use GPFS with IB and OPA 
both in RDMA mode. Granted, I know very little about OPA but if it just 
presents as another verbs device I wonder why it wouldn't "Just work" as long 
as GPFS is configured correctly.-AaronOn 9/19/16 3:11 AM, Vic Cornell wrote:>
