[OpenIndiana-discuss] InfiniBand card not working

I'm trying to configure it via NWAM, and it's the mem-full card.

When I try to configure it, it just says "waiting for address" in NWAM.
I've set it up as manual, and configured it with all of the IP information
for the IB network to no avail.

Can you describe how you are trying to configure your device?

If it shows up in nwam-manager (the default network GUI), you should
configure it the same way as an Ethernet device by selecting the
device in nwam-manager, switching to "Manual configuration", and
specifying an IPv4 and/or v6 address, rather than trying to bring up
the interface by hand. Alternatively, you can disable NWAM using the
procedure in nwamd(1) and use the legacy network configuration.

Is this the mem-free or mem-full InfiniHost III? These apparently need
different drivers.
