Half-height blade connected to switches 7,8

Hi all,

I am defining the configuration of a set of blade servers BL460 (half-height). In the interconnect bays there are:

* bay 1 and 2: cisco 3020
* bay 3 and 4: FC pass-thru
* bay 5 and 6: cisco 3020
* bay 7 and 8: cisco 3020

I have to connect these half-height blades to the SAN with a Qlogic mezzanine and to the switches 7,8. Is it possibile this setup using the quad gigabit NC325M?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Half-height blade connected to switches 7,8

yes,

the embedded NICs will connect to the Bay 1 and 2 3020's

an FC HBA in mezz slot 1 will connect to the pass-thru

an NC325M in mezz slot 2 will connect to the 3020's in bays 5-8
