Device bay crosslinks


slightly confused about the bay-to-bay crosslinks in the C3000 enclosure. All the docs I've found talk about 'adjacent' blades, but they don't say adjacent which way, or if it's both!

What I'm after is knowing if it's possible to attach a tape blade *and* an SB40c DAS blade to a BL460c (for example), or can each server blade only link to one other blade?

Hope someone can help!

It's between bays in the same quadrant. So for 1/2 height devices you can connect 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8. This means each server can have one partner blade.
