GbE2c to BL685 port mapping

Hi All,

Our environment consists of the following components:

1 x C7000 Chassis
3 x BL685 Blade Servers
4 x GbE2c switches

According to page 25 in the attached document:
Blade Server 1 is connected to ports 1 and 9 on switch 1 as well as ports 1 and 9 on switch 2.

Blade Server 2 is connected to ports 2 and 10 on switch 1 as well as ports 2 and 10 on switch 2.
...

The example in the document goes over connectivity with 2 GbE2c switches.

What is the port mapping when 4 GbE2c Switches are used? Does it follow the same convention? eg. BS1 - ports 1 and 9 on Switch 3 and Switch4?

Onboard nics always go to switches 1&2.
Mezzanine 1 goes to 3&4.
Mez. 2's ports go to 5,6,7,8.
Mez. 3's ports go to 5,6,7,8.

Thanks Blazhev. Looks like i need to use mezz 2 as the 2nd pair of GbE2c's are in bays 5,6.
