can we configure "HP VC 8Gb 20-port FC module" without HP virtual Connect manager?

Dear

     We have a HP C7000 Blade server with the following Interconnect Bays:

  •     GbE2c Layer 2/3 Ethernet Blade Switch(2 switches in Bay 1 and Bay 2)
  •     HP VC 8Gb 20-port FC module (1 switch in Bay 3)
  •     HP B-series 8/24c SAN Switch BladeSystem c-class(2 switches in Bay 5 and Bay 6)

    We want to reconfigure the "HP VC 8Gb 20-port FC module ".

    But from the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator, we can't find the "HP virtual Connect manager".

the firmware version of the Onboard administrator is 4.01.

We also have another HP C7000 Blade server. It has "HP virtual Connect manager".

The difference between them is the first Blade server is installed with "HP VC 8Gb 20-port FC module", the later one is installed with "HP VC Flex-10 Enet Module".

could any one tell me whether "HP VC 8Gb 20-port FC module" can be configured ?

If can ,could you please give me the instruction guide?

Thanks very much

Tony,

The HP VC 8Gb 20-port FC module (1 switch in Bay 3) is a FibreChannel device, it has no Virtual Connect Manager within it.

You need a VC 1/10, VC Flex10, 10D, or Flexfabic module in bays 1 or 1/2 to be able to have access to Virtual Connect Manager.

Otherwise its a lump of metal and PCBs
