Re: Function of above product

You could start here:

http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/bladesystem/index.aspx

the first 2 modules are virtual connect, so consider to learn more about VC:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/blades/virtualconnect/index.html

 

The third is a "normal" ethernet switch, the forth simple provides the mezzanine FC ports to outside (hence "pass-thru").

In fact each mezzanine card of a server is hard-wired to specific slots at the rear side of the blade enclosure, so the HBA and the interconnect must fit.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi!

 

Just to expand on the documentation you might want to study is the C Class Enclosures manuals.

 

This will show you how the embedded NIC's (on Blades), Mezz 1, 2 and 3 "map" to the interconnects in the rear of the enclosures.

 

Interesting note on above if using BL460G8's as servers, You WILL only enable the second mezzanine connector if there is a second processor installed.
