C3000 blade with GBE2C network card

Hi I have a C3000 blade system, with 4 blade servers installed, It also has 1 GBE2C network card which has 5 uplink ports.

There is 1 network cable connected from the GBe2C port 20 to a cisco 3650 swicth which I have added to the management vlan.

I want to connect four network cables to increase the performance of the network as at the moment the performance is very slow as only 1 cable is being used as uplink. How do i configure the switch so that all 4 cables are being used as uplinks?

Thanks,

Hello,

You need to configure a Trunk on the GbE2c Switch - and on the cisco switch i remember it's called an etherchannel link.

The GBE2 is not just a network-card, it's a network-switch.

look into this document : "Deploying the ProLiant BL p-Class GbE2 Interconnect Switch into a Cisco-based Network"
