Hi Torsten, 

 

Thank you ,but this document  doesn't show the connectivity between the Flex fabric ports and the storage controllers 

(Example Port X1 Bay 1 connected to Controller 0 port 1) as this what i need in detailed description :) 

 

the other documents that i found like FC Cookbook says that the connecvitivy goes in a cross match.

Hi Gammal....

 

 

Did your setup as you indicated in your diagram work ok? A customer has two new c7000's that will be stacked together - and would like to direct connect his FlexFabric 20/40 F8 modules (4 modules - Bay1 and 2 in each enclosure - like your diagram) - to his 3PAR 7400 4N system. Please let me know if this layout was go or no/go... Many thanks...

Hi Jazzman, 

 

The setup worked just fine :) , 

 

for you inquiry i didn't stack the enclosures because i'm using HP Oneview as it doesn't support multiple enclosure stacking , also please note that the stacking is only for Ethernet networks only not for storage connectivity .

 

 

Thank you
