C7000 mixing half and full baldes in a zone



I have read on the quick spec guide that there is no possibility to mix full hight and half height within a quadrant zone .


Is there any way to overcome this limitation via any customized solution as I have reamianing two slots which I want to install two half blade while there is already another full blade installed in this zone ?


Thanks in advance 

Best Regards

Re: C7000 mixing half and full baldes in a zone

You cannot install a half height blade in the upper row, because there is no divider that can hold the blade in this position. Your only workaround may be to install a blade in the lower bay only.

Hope this helps!
