Partition --scan not finding any partition in the system

Jump to solution

I have successfully flashed the partition of the alveo u50 and now I am trying to program the shell partition with

sudo /opt/xilinx/xrt/bin/xbmgmt partition --program --name <shell_name> --card <card_bdf>

but I can't get the shell_name using 

sudo /opt/xilinx/xrt/bin/xbmgmt partition --scan

because I don't get any output.

When I run:

sudo /opt/xilinx/xrt/bin/xbmgmt partition --scan --verbose

I get:

Card [0000:02:00.0]

I have installed all the packages on my computer (Ubuntu 20.04 with Tools Version 2020.2) and I don't now how to find the shell_name.

Thanks in advance

Hi @lorenzo_rada ,

Welcome to the forums! The process you described sounds like a DFX-2RP shell: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/75975.html where the base shell would be flashed to the FPGA, then the shell partition is programmed. Currently the shell listed in that answer record is the only 2RP production shell available. 

Your U50 does not use a 2RP shell, and the output above shows it has the the xilinx_u50_gen3x16_xdma_201920_3 shell installed onto it. To see the shell loaded onto the card as well as the shell installed on the host system, run 'sudo xbmgmt flash --scan'.

Best,
-Emery

Thanks, so at the moment only the Alveo u250 has a DFX-2RP shell.
