Is there a Single Blade Enclosure or Similar to Allow access to a blade for Diagnostics/Config??

Strange Question, we have BL460c Gen 1,6,7 & 8's & also BL465c Gen7.....I am looking for some method of testing/configuring and individual blade outhwith the standard c7000 enclosures we use here? We currently do complete unit swaps for any hardware failures & just swap the disks to give us speedy return to service, we then repair the blades & need to either wait for a free slot in an enclosure & raise a change to cover inserting when there is no guarantee its fixed.

 

I had heard that there was a diagnostic station for blades, but cant seem to find anything on it.

 

Any guidance would be appreciated

 

Cheers

 

John

There was something for the p-class AFAIR, but nothing for the c-class. How about a used c3000 enclosure?


Hope this helps!
