2 HP BLc VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 VC uplinks to entirely different networks

Greetings!

 We have  8 HP BL460c Gen9 blades in a C7000 chassis with

2 HP BLc VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 VC  and 20GB  2port flexnics on each blade...

is it possible to uplink the chassis to 2 entirely different networks so  that 4 blades only go through one Flexfabric module and other 4 blades thru another Module...using server profiles ?

Appreciate any pointers/suggestions

 

Thank you  in advance!

Re: 2 HP BLc VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 VC uplinks to entirely different networks

When you have two VC modules installed you count on redudancy so that if one module fails, the other keeps the network connections active.  You CAN setup different networks so that they use only one VC module, but there really is no need.  Just create your networks as needed, using ports from each VC module.  Connect the uplink ports as required to your data center switching and you have acheived what you are looking for I think.

It is the profiles that assign the networks to the servers, so you can have whatever connections you wish on whatever blade servers you wish.
