Virtual Connect Flex 10-Configure same VLan for multiple ports on a profile.

Hello,
I am having 2 Flex 10 VC with 1 shared uplink each.
Server is having 2 physical ports.
when i try to assign same v-lan to more than 2 ports, getting error.
eth duplicated.
is it the limitation of 2 phisical ports.
if i want to add 4 ports with same v-lan (network)i need 4 phisical ports ?

thanx

Re: Virtual Connect Flex 10-Configure same VLan for multiple ports on a profile.

1)I have created a shared uplink set tagged with 2 Vlans Vlan-1 and Vlan-2.
2)Created a profile with 2 network ports.
3)Assigned as follows

a)Profile 1- NIC1 -> vlan-1 & NIC2 ->Vlan2.
when I apply the profile its works fine.

ISSUE:
I have created Profile 2.
when i assign
NIC1 ->Vlan1
NIC2 ->Vlan1(Same VLAN(network)on both NICs.)

If I am trying assign on multiple NICs, when I apply the profile it give error.
(Error-Duplicate network.)

Hi JK,

You can not assign more than one Flex NIC on each physical NIC to the same virtual network. In this case you will have to define a new network using different uplink ports (they can be connected to the same VLAN). Then you can assign NIC3 and NIC4 to this new network.

So this is OK:
NIC1a: virtual network 1
NIC2a: virtual network 1
NIC1b: virtual network 2
NIC2b: virtual network 2

and this is not OK:
NIC1a: virtual network 1
NIC2a: virtual network 1
NIC1b: virtual network 1
NIC2b: virtual network 1

good luck, if you appreciate the answers we appreciate the points!

Thanxx for the answer,

That means If I need more connections from the same Vlan i need more phycical cards ?

Not at all. Let's say you want all 8 FlexNICs on your BL460c G6 server to be on the same subnet.

Define 4 virtual networks in the Virtual Connect Manager, each using one or more distinct uplink ports. The VCM is blind to what VLANs each uplink port connects to outside of the enclosure.

In the server profiles, add network connections and point each pair (1a & 2a, 1b & 2b, etc.) to a different virtual network.

I think it would help us to know what your goal is. If all your traffic is going to a single VLAN, you really can do fine with just one pair up...
