The same network cannot be on multiple Flex-10 ports

I am getting message "The same network cannot be on multiple Flex-10 ports within the same profile"

This is when I try to assign more than two Flex 10 NIC to the server profile with same network name. If I assign just two it is OK.
Is there any limitation ?

Re: The same network cannot be on multiple Flex-10 ports

It is by design
"Each FlexNIC on a physical port can be assigned to a different vNet or remain unassigned, but multiple FlexNICs on a single port cannot be assigned to the same vNet. This is an architectural limitation and will not change"

Igor is right Funtoosh, but you will still be able to connect at 10Gb. If you need separate pairs of NICs to go to the same network you can attach additional network cables to the Flex 10 module and configure each uplink port as its own network.

good luck

Re: The same network cannot be on multiple Flex-10 ports

have you tried configuring the NICs for multiple networks and then presenting the network twice?

Yes I did and it won't. It is clearly mention in one of post on page 13
