What tools are need to config the FlexNics in BL860Ci2?

Sunya was looking for some help:

 

*****************************

 

Dear All,

  I’m a newbie for working with Virtual Connect FlexNics. Now I’m proposing BL860Ci2 with the designed 10-12 network ports.  I plan to use the LOM and VC flex10. I just want to know and more discovery how I can config each LOM port to be 4 FlexNics. 

 

Is that tool a command line in HP-UX? What is that command?

Can I have the GUI for config this LOM? Which tool?

Vincent provided some guidance:

 

*************************

 

You create a Virtual Connect profile for your server with Virtual Connect Manager that runs embedded in the VC modules (you can access it via a GUI or a CLI). When the profile is applied to the server, it will automatically create the FlexNICs that will be seen as regular NICs by the OS, so you would configure them for IP addresses or DHCP as any other NIC.

Comments or other suggestions?
