Question: BL660 Gen9 - FEX Support?



Patti wrote in asking about FEX (Fabric Extender) support for the new BL660 Gen9 server blade:






I am looking in the Quick Specs for the B22 FEX support by our BL660c Gen9.

All 3 documents on Page 2 list the HP Cisco B22HP Fabric Extender as a supported Interconnect, so I think you are all good.
