as you can see my client nodes is 0, I even cannot find client service helperd log in /var/log

any one can shed some light?

guys

I tried to disable RDMA client with below steps, I restart client service, but looks like no one load beegfs kernel module, no dmesg log

====

If you want to use a thirdparty driver though, you have to specify it in the file /etc/beegfs/beegfs-client-autobuild.conf like this: buildArgs=-j8 OFED_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/src/openib/include.

To build the client without RDMA support, add BEEGFS_NO_RDMA=1 to buildArgs.

To force a rebuild of the client kernel modules, you need to be root on a client node and then call:

# /etc/init.d/beegfs-client rebuild

After a successful module build, the beegfs-client needs to be restarted:

# /etc/init.d/beegfs-client restart

If the client module is unable to load, dmesg (or /var/log/messages) might provide useful information.

I tried to manully load beegfs kernel module with modprobe, it is OK.
but I failed to manually mount it with below command
===
mount -t beegfs beegfs_nodev /mnt/beegfs -ocfgFile=/etc/beegfs/beegfs-mounts.conf,_netdev,nosuid

===dmesg error===

guys, I fixed this problem by change below
===
# Set to "NO" to disable start of the BeeGFS client via the init script.
START_SERVICE="YES"

# Set to "YES" if you want to start multiple clients with different
# configuration files on this machine.
