Connect Flex10/10d modules to a single switch

Hi,

 

A customer of mine wants to attach his blade enclosures to a single, unmanaged switch, ostensibly to gain access to his DMZ.  Notwithstanding the obvious (no redundancy, etc.) is it legal to connect a SINGLE uplink from each IC module to one switch?  No VLANS, trunking, SUS, etc. would be involved.

 

Thanks!

Re: Connect Flex10/10d modules to a single switch

A bit dated, I know, but my initial thoughts are that the modules may think they are being stacked.  I guess this depends on exactly how "dumb" the switch is.
