IS the 516936-B21 in BL460 G5 compatible with FlexFabric 571956-B21 in Ethernet only

Need to buy some new BL460 G8,s and currently have some  G5,s and want to implement an HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module 571956-B21 and wanted to know if the FlexFabric interconnect will support the 10G card 9516936-B21. 

 

Knowing that no FCOE signal will passthrough only Ethernet but that is what we want.

 

Is there a support matrix of Flex interconnect and HBA/Mezz cards ?

 

Thx

 

PS:my understanding is that they could both coexist but need confirmation of the 10GE support for G5.

At the very outset it can neither be said that the HP 10 GBE DUAL PORT MEZZANINE NETWORK INTERFACE CARD is support or not.

 

The HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module’s QuickSpecs indicate that it is capable of carrying Ethernet signal and supports 10 Gb speeds. It is just that this configuration may not been have tested since the mezzanine card in question has been retired by the time the FlexFabric module was introduced. The module’s QuickSpecs does not include it as a supported adaptor. Click here for the module's QuickSpecs that also lists supported servers and network adaptors.

 

 

As it is not tested, it cannot be said with certainty if they both should work, however, having said that, they should work at 10Gb speed with no option for Flex capacity.

 

Hope this helps!
