Quad Port Nic Pass-Through.

Hi,

 

I have a full height BL685c blade server in a c7000 chassis. The server has Mezz Slot 1 populated with an FC HBA Card and Mezz Slot 2 populated with a NC325m Quad Port 1gb NIC card.

 

The question I have relates to port mapping.  At this time our chassis has pass-through modules installed and looks like this....

 

Bay 1 - Ethernet Pass-Throuh

Bay 2 - Ethernet Pass-Throuh

Bay 3 - Fibre Channel Pass-Throuh

Bay 4 - Fibre Channel Pass-Throuh

Bay 5 - Ethernet Pass-Throuh

Bay 6 - Ethernet Pass-Throuh

Bay 7 - Empty

Bay 8 - Empty

 

The full height blade is mapped out as seen in the attached screen shot.

 

The question I have is, do I need to buy 2 new Ethernet Pass-Through modules to patch up ports 3 & 4 of Mez Slot 2?

Im hoping they will map to ports 10 of bay's 5 & 6?

 

Thanks for your time in reading this post.

 

Regards

It looks like you will have to populate Bay's 7 & 8 check out the pic. Ports 3 & 4 of mez two map out to 7 & 8.

What about adding a dual port NIC card to Mez slot 3 of the server?  Would that not map up to the bottom half ports of bays 5 & 6?

Yep. Do you want to buy interconnects or put in Mez cards? That is the question....
