Re: Flex Fabric

Hi Toni,

what server Generation do you have?
BL680 G5 does NOT have Flex Fabric NICS
BL680 G7 has those.

So for the G5 you would have to buy a mezz.

Re: Flex Fabric

Hi Toni,

you can use the integrated NIC´s with the VC Flex Fabric IC with FC (over Ethernet) or iSCSI - so there is no need to install a additional HBA to connect to your SAN.
