Switch connection

I'm connecting server blade nic 1 & 2 via HP blade encloser C7000 inter connecting bay 1 & 2 into two cisco layyer 3 switches. Do I need to make configuration on OA (On-board Administration). When I connecto both nic from both inter connecting bay to same one switch, it work fine. But when connection from inter conneting bay 2 connect with another switch 2, it doesn't work.Even LED of the switch and interconnecting bay nic port doesn't glow. Kindly advise

Re: Switch connection

What type of modules do you have in Interconnect Bays 1 and 2?

Re: Switch connection

are you using teaming of the network cards? in that case what teaming type are you using?

The HP Passwthrough 1GB is only 1gb not 100/1000. So if switch 2 is a 10/100 switch or is a gigabit switch and has any setting other than Auto or 1000 Full on the port it won't connect.

Re: Switch connection

Yes, I'm using HP teaming software for teaming two inbuilt network card. And I'm connecting cat6 between HP 1Gb ethernet passthrou card and two Cisco Gigabit switches. I'll give you detail model of cisco switch later. What I need to do ?
