HP BL460c

I was wondering if anyone has tried to setup a BL460c to have 4 seperate networks using only 2 VC ethernet bays.  Is this even possible or will I have to have 4 seperate VC ethernet modules in 4 seperate bays?  I am using this as a VM host and I already have 2 seperate networks setup on it and I need to have 2 more seperate networks added.  Sorry but I am just a little confused on this.  The first 2 that are setup in vSphere correctly/currently are Broadcom NC373i adapters VMNIC0 and VMNIC1.  The 2 that are not working are Intel NC360m adapters VMNIC2 and VMNIC3.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

With that configuration you will need more interconnects (what are the existing two that you have?).  Your two 1Gb connections go to Bay 1 and 2 on the back.  The second 1Gb connections you have (a dual-port mezz card) will go to Bay 3 and 4.  To use those connections you have to populate those interconnect bays.

 

It would be different if you CNA LOMs on those servers.

What Virtual Connects and Firmware are you running? What are they connected to: Cisco? HP? Other switch?

I though that was the case but I was just hoping that there has to be a better way without spending anymore money.
