Mixing BL460c G7 and BL860c i2

by on ‎07-25-2011 08:11 AM



Has anyone here deployed a mixed blade environment?


I am looking into configuring some BL860c i2 running HP-UX with some BL460c G7 blades running VMware with multiple Linux guest OS.


Any best practice around this?  Or better to stay away from mixed environment?



No problems, you can mix whatever you want in that blade enclosure, I’ve seen most of it.


The blades don’t really talk to eachother if you don’t tell them to do it intentionally anyway, and then it’s regular IP-based communication.


Making the enclosure run only one type of OS or one type of blades would be.. madness :-)
