c3000: How to connect BL460c Server to different VLANs?

Hi all,

i'm experiencing the following:
In the c3000 enclosure i have interconect bays such as the "GbE2c Ethernet Blade" switch, and a few bl460c server blades. As you know, each blade server has two ethernet interfaces. I want to connect each interface to different vlans. How can i do this?
At the moment, i have only one ethernet port, port 20, connected to my LAN-Switch, so that all server blades are reachable in the LAN through that one ethernet cable. How can i setup, e.g. port 21 of the interconnect switch, to be the only port to a related server blade, which i then can connect to a differrent VLAN on my LAN-Switch. (So that one server blade can connect to two VLANs?)

I hope my explanations are understandable, if not please ask.

Thank you very much in advance.
Florian

Hi Florian,

you didn't mention which OS you have instaled on the blades, hope it is Windows. Check the following document :

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/networking/configvlan.pdf

Normally if Proliant support pack is installed you have Network Configuration utility.

About setting the VLANs on the switch check page 43+ :

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00701973/c00701973.pdf

and page 140 :
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00701566/c00701566.pdf

It should be as easy as :

Add a 2nd VLAN(ID) to one of the NICs(1st doc) and then configure VLAN 2 on port 20(2nd&3rd doc), then connect it to the uplink switch.

Hope this is what you meant
