FCoE via LOM on Integrity BL8xxc i4

FCoE via LOM on Integrity BL8xxc i4

Hello team,

 

  I am searching for any official document with information that Integrity blade server BL870 i4 (or BL8x0c i4) and connection to storage (in my example 3PAR 7200) via integrated NC553i and Virtual Connect is supported.

  For ProLiant servers there is a lot of information and (I think) all is clear, but for HP-UX machines ... 

  (SPOCK was rummaged - no information about INTEGRATED NC553i)

 

  Thank you in advance!

Re: FCoE via LOM on Integrity BL8xxc i4

The overview page (and likely quickspec too) say FCoE is supported.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: FCoE via LOM on Integrity BL8xxc i4

Dear Torsten,

 

Thank you for link and information.

 

I am still confused because (in the same link):

(copy/pasted)

FlexFabric support2, 3 :

Four (4) ports via Two Dual (2) port SE-BE4310 Converged Network Controllers integrated on system motherboard:
  • Dual (2) ports via HP BLc NC553m Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapter

  • Dual (2) ports via HP BLc NC551m Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapter

 

NC553m and NC551m are mezzanine cards with their own P/N. They are not in motherboard. The board in motherboard has to be "i" (example CN553i). If only NC553m are supported, they ask an additional VCs in communication slots (3 and 4) of blade chassis.

 In QuickSpec of VC there is also confusing information (about servers supported in VC in slot 1 and 2).

 

But doesn't matter... I will stop looking for the sentence: "... this VC supports ... that LOM ... in BL8X0c i4 server ... with HP-UX 11.31 ..."

Many thanks for your efforts!

P.S. Dear HP - sometimes the docs are not clear enough :-(
