First steps at Enclosure c3000

Hello, everyone!

Not long ago we've bought c3000 BladeSystem with two BL460c Gen8 Servers on board and two 6125G/XG switches, also we want to buy 3 more BL460c Gen10.

Question is how to connect this farm to our SAN-fabric based on Brocade 300 switches (8 GB Fiber Channel)?

As I understand, after reading tonns of documentation and forums, we need Fiber-Channel Pass-Through module or Virual Connect Fiber Channel Module.

So, can you advice, what exactly modules for Enclosure c300 do I need? Do I need specified adapters for BL460c (at Gen8 we have HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 534FLB Adapter)? This project isn't cheap for our company and we don't have rights for mistake

Thanks for helping!

First of all you need to have HBA on BL (mezzanine port)

Then install either San switch/or pasthru on slot 3 and 4 (rear) in C3000

Hey, franchy94! Thanks for quick replying.

Is HPE Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port Fibre Channel Module for c-Class BladeSystem will help? Cuz I cann't find Pass-Tru 8 GB module.
