netwrok traffic between two blades in the same chassis

Hi I have a C7000 with two HP VC Flex-10 Enet Module FW: 3.75

I have two blades in the same chassis  one is a BL860cI2 and the second is a BL460G8

I read that if you have two blades in the same chassis and connected to the same virtual connect your can have network communication without leaving the chassis.

 

I want to see if I can improve network performance by configuring the two blades to talk to each other at 10GB.

one server is running HPUX 11.31 and the second server is running Linux Suse.

 

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this from the VC or OA configuration. your help will be appreciated.

 

 

If you want me to post more information please let me know.

Create a network in VC and don't assign it an uplink port. Go into each servers profile in VC and assign the server NIC to this new network

You dont even need a new VLAN. As long as they are on the same VLAN/Network within VC Manager for their primary interface, that traffic should stay inside.
Then just make sure that FlexNIC has enough bandwidth or upgrade to VC 4.01 where FlexNIC Bursting is now supported via the new Min/Max bandwidth feature.
