About QLogic QMH4062 and bonding for BL465c

Fei had a question:

 

*******************************************************************************************

My customer is using BL465c, with OS RHEL5.4.

Could you help me to confirm the question below please?

 

Suppose BL465c’s embedded network controller to be NIC1 & NIC2,

And add an Ethernet Mezzanine Options QMH4062

(QLogic QMH4062 1Gb E iSCSI Adapter for HP BladeSystem c-Class 488074-B21)

to have network port as NIC3 & NIC4.

 

1)  Is it possible to use QMH4062 as an ordinary network controller?

Does it have something to do with Linux OS ver.?

 

2)  Is it possible to have NIC1 & NIC3, or NIC2 & NIC4 in a same bonding?

Does it have something to do with OS NIC driver or bonding driver?

Yes, it is possible to have the 2 bonds setup as you describe.

Do you use a lot of NIC teaming in your data centers. Are there scenarios you would like to see us support?
