Re: Flex 10 config

You have not configured all flex NICs in the server profile. Add 8 interfaces if You want all to have connection.

Re: Flex 10 config

A flex-10 NIC defaults to one, full-speed 10Gbit/s "flexnic" per port on the NIC. If you want to, you may subdivide that port into as many as 4 (at least in the case of the NC532i/NC532m) "flexnics" assigning each a given bandwidth limit, which IIRC, should sum to no more than 10Gbit/s per port.

So, that it is showing two connected and six not connected is to be expected.

Re: Flex 10 config

You cannot connect 2 FlexNICs carved out of the same Flex-10 10Gb port to the same Virtual Connect network. If you want to connect all 4 FlexNICs of a port, you need to have 4 different VC networks defined. If you don't need that many networks, you can perfectly use only one FlexNIC per port and push its speed to 10Gb, nothing wrong with that.

Hi Vincent

Perfect....but the connected one is also not getting the external connectivity, we have configured the up link, shows active, configured the cisco port as trunk
