C3000 Ethernet pass-through


We just bought C3000 blade system.

We installed BL280c G6 server into device bay 1 and Ethernet pass-through module into Interconnect bay 1.

Onboard Administrator tells, that server's embedded NICs are mapped to ports 1 and 9 of pass-through module. Also it tells, that statuses of the server and pass-through module are "OK".

Module's port 1 is connected to network switch.

But LEDs on pass-through module ports are off and server's OS tells, that "network cable is unplugged".

What should we do to manage this?

Thank you!

Re: C3000 Ethernet pass-through

The pass-through module has nothing to configure.


Note that the pass-through modules are gigabit-only: they cannot fall back to 10/100 Mbps speeds.

This is a common issue for people with their first c-class bladesystem.

Matti_Kurkela, thank you very much!

Server's network is OK when port of pass-through module is connected to 1Gb port of network switch.
