c7000 with MSA P2000 and 1GbE switch

Hi Everyone,


I would be grateful if someone could verify this.


Basically, I need those 3 devices working together:

- BladeSystem c7000 with HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 (as VM node)

- HP P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI Combo (as datastore)

- 1GbE Cisco switch


My idea is to:

- connect Flex-10 with P2000 directly via Fibre Channel (no switch between)

- connect Flex-10 with Cisco switch via 1Gbe link (using SFP RJ45 module e.g. HP x121..??)
