C-class Blade and Lefthand connectivity

Hi, can someone advise on this....
I have a C-3000 with 3xBl460. 1x OA and 1x VC 1/10GB ethernet.
I also have a Lefthand 4500.
how do i connect my LH to BLADE? via the VC? or do i need to have a switch? how do they get linkup?
how about the iSCSI, is a software or hardware?
Thanks

Re: C-class Blade and Lefthand connectivity

HP does support using the Left-Hand P4000 series with the c-class blade enclosure.

And you can use the HP VC-Enet modules for iSCSI. You might want to check this ITRC thread for more information:

This does include using Vmware OS.

Re: C-class Blade and Lefthand connectivity

You need a switch between the VC and the lefthand unit.
The onboard NICs are iSCSI so you just need drivers/application software.
