Re: How to connect to HP VC 8Gb FC module?

I need to connect c7000 to storage systems through fc factory only.

Re: How to connect to HP VC 8Gb FC module?

As said, it depends. With current VC ethernet modules and blades you don't need FC mezzanines and interconnects at all, because the converged adapters of the blades can do FCoE, the VC modules can be configured to have FC uplink ports that can be connected to an external FC switch. Otherwise you may consider to use a current b-series FC switch and mezzanine FC cards.

 

Your

VC 8Gb FC module is useless at the moment.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: How to connect to HP VC 8Gb FC module?

 

Is this still the case? I have a C7000 with the following:

 

1,2 = 10Gbps pass-thrus

3,4 = 4Gbps FC pass-thrus

5,6 = 8Gbps VC-FCs

We don't want any VC-FC features - we just want pass-through to our Nexus 5548UPs. Using OneView in managed mode, I was able to configure the VC-FC's and my Nexus switchs sees the Blade PWWNs. 

 

Is VC-Enet still required now that we have OneView?
