RDMA disconnects in a switchless storage network topology

Article Content



In an Azure Stack HCI using switchless storage network toplogy, when the cable is disconnected and reconnected, most of the time, RDMA sessions immediately get established in 1 direction and may be slow (up to a day) to come up for the other direction. However, sometimes, RDMA sessions may not get established in either direction.


Impact and Resolution

Cluster storage networks fall back on to TCP for all communication and it may impact performance if RDMA does not get established automatically.


To reestablish RDMA sessions, you can manually disable and re-enable the adapters using PowerShell

Disable-NetAdapter -Name 'Storage Adapter Name'

Enable-NetAdapter -Name 'Storage Adapter Name'
