Re: Mezzaninecard

A mezzanine card is a smaller form of PCI card.

A mezzanine connector connects two parallel (PCI) printed circuit boards in a stacking configuration.

Mezzanine card is usually used in Blade Servers because the Blades does not have enough space to accomidate a PCI/PCI-e/PCI-x cards.

Re: Mezzaninecard

A mezzanine card will be mapped to a certain position in the interconnect bays. You must match the mezzanine card (depending on whether your blade is half-height or full height) with the interconnect device. Interconnect bay devices include Ethernet, Fiber, Flex, and Fabric.

You can see what is in your blade chassis now by looking at each interconnect bay device. To see how the ports are mapped, you can expand one of your blades (under device bay) and select the port option.

Hope this helps. If you have virtual connect, you have a lot of learning ahead...
