(Optional) Installing Special Drivers

Before an ECS is used to create a private image, you need to install special drivers on it.

  1. After a P1 ECS is created, you must install the NVIDIA driver for computing acceleration. For how to install the NVIDIA driver, see How Can I Install the NVIDIA Driver on a P1 ECS?
  2. If an H2 ECS is created using a private image, install an InfiniBand NIC driver on the ECS after the ECS creation following the instructions provided by Mellanox. Download the required version (4.2-1.0.0.0) of InfiniBand NIC driver from the official Mellanox website and install the driver by following the instructions provided by Mellanox.
  3. HL1 ECSs created using a private image must have the InfiniBand NIC driver installed. Download the required version (4.2-1.0.0.0) of InfiniBand NIC driver from the official Mellanox website and install the driver by following the instructions provided by Mellanox.
    • InfiniBand NIC type: Mellanox Technologies ConnectX-4 Infiniband HBA (MCX455A-ECAT)
