Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module VSAN Trunking

Hello Everyone,

I have a quick question about the Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module, i have this module for a POC.

I connect this module to a Cisco MDS 9509.

Until so far i have found in the documentation and the internet that this module acts in NPIV mode. My question is if there is a way to config this module to act as a switch and if it supports VSAN trunking at all? also does it support port-channeling?

(This blade center is not operational yet so i havnt seen whats on the configuration of this module :) )

The module is not a switch. It will not act like a switch.

I JUST installed one of these for a POC, but I don't remember if the Fibre ports aggragate up since we only had 1 port per switch to use. I know the network ports suport LACP.

I'll be going back on site with my customer and will try to take a look.
