Is the Flex-Connect capable of mapping over HP 10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch

Hi, 

 

I have a c7000 enclosure at my hands and I need 10G ethernet interconnectivity. The thing is that I am currently using 3 Bl685c gen1 blades and 2 bl465c gen7 blades. The g7s have embedded NC551i Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb, my question is would this controller be able to map over a very old HP 10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch ( 445860-B21 ) ? If it does I would just get 10g mezzanines for the G1s and would have 10g interconnectivity. Is there something I'm missing? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

The HP NC551m Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapter's QuickSpecs section "Compatibility > Supported Interconnect Modules", does not list HP 10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch as a supported switch and hence it cannot be said with certainity that it would function at 10G speed. At the maximum, it may function at 1Gb per port connection.
