Does BL460c G7's Integrated NC553i support Ethernet Pass-Through Module for HP BladeSystem

Does BL460c G7's Integrated NC553i support Ethernet Pass-Through Module for HP BladeSystem

Shawn was looking for confirmation:




Understand that under Product Bulletin listed under support interconnect for NC553m, it does not list 406740-B21, 1GbE Pass-Thru as a supported interconnect as it does not list it under below:


·         HP 6120XG Blade Switch


·         HP 6120G/XG Blade Switch


·         HP GbE2c Layer 2/3 Ethernet Blade Switch


·         HP 1:10Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch


·         Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP c-Class BladeSystem


·         Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3120X/G for HP c-Class BladeSystem


·         HP 10GbE Pass-Thru Module


·         HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module


·         HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-port Module


·         HP Virtual Connect 1/10Gb Ethernet Module


·         HP Virtual Connect 1/10Gb-F Ethernet Module


Therefore seek to double confirm if it makes any difference if it’s a NC553i (integrated) instead.




From Hiro:




You have to upgrade firmware of 1Gb Pass-Thru module.

Please see this advisory.


Advisory: (Revision) HP NC550m, NC551m, NC552m, and NC553i 10GbE Server Adapters - False Link Status May Be Indicated when the Adapters Are Mapped to a 1 Gb Pass-Thru Module Even When No Cable Is Attached
