Bl460c G7 and Bl460c Gen8 with an old c7000 enclosure.

Hi,

 

A c7000 enclosure was bought in Sep., 2009. And its firmware was updated to the latest version.

Can we insert Bl460c G7 and Bl460c Gen8 servers enclosure?

Sure.  As you state, the OA firmware is updated and that is all you need to really worry about with newer systems.  Once installed, I would advise that you check the iLO version of the blades to see if they can be updated as well.

As long as the firmware is up to date, G7 and Gen8 servers should have no problems being used in any c7000 enclosure. The only potential issue would be power and cooling - make sure to have enough power supplies and fans installed to support the additional servers, as default configurations of enclosures typically did not include all 10 fans or 6 power supplies populated.
