HP GbE2c L2/3 blade switch supported with ProLiant Gen8 blades?

Michael had a blade switch question:

 

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

 

Does anyone know why we do not list Gen 8 server in the HP GbE2c L2/3 blade switch product bulletin information ?

 

I tried to find the ProLiant Gen8 blade, but not listed.

Are we supporting this (GbE2c in c7000 enclosure with Blade Gen8 type) ?

Reply from Steve:

All of our Ethernet blade switches are supported by the ProLiantGen8 server line.  This includes the GbE2c L2/3 and the Cisco FEX.

 

For whatever reason the QuickSpec updates for the switches were delayed.  But, as per the adapter QS, they are fully supported.

Which FlexibleNetwork LOM did you choose?

QuickSpecs of each NIC lists supported interconnects.

For example, QuickSpecs of 554FLB is:
