I always wanted to test out infiniband, so I waited until a could find some cheap adapter on ebay. It took me couple of month to get them, but i have finally have them now.
My first problem was that the open fabric driver werent update for server 2012/win8. On their forum i found a couple of people that modified them to make them work, so i tested those driver and they worked.

my cards:

Cisco Infiniband HCA

20GB/S
0MB On-Board Memory
Flash Size: 2MB
RoHS: Yes
PCI-Express 1.0a, x8
DDR
Power: 4W
Tall Bracket
MT50N21B02 SFS-HCA-320-A1

Both my card are detected and running. I have a cx4 cable connecting them. My problem is when i try to ping from one side to the other, it doesnt work.

I have both card in connected mode. Only one of the two has the OpenSm service running. Now i am little bit confused after reading a lot of guide online. I set up a static ip for both my card that werent in the same range than my normal internet network. I have also put them on another subnet mask

internet network : 192.168.1.1....
infiniband : 11.4.3.204 for one and 11.4.3.205 for the other

subnet infiniband: 255.255.0.0
internet subnet : 255.255.255.0

So is there any infiniband guru that could help me?
