If there is not any Virtual Connect Ethernet module, can VC-Fibre Channel work independent?

Hari had a customer question regarding Virtual Connect modules:

As per my understanding , you need minimum one VC Ethernet module to be available for VCM to work. So with Ethernet Pass thru and VC-FC is not supported configuration. The VCM firmware will be only be running on VC Ethernet module.

 

Don’t know whether with latest VCM firmware this is resolved or not.

Right. VC-FC modules can only be managed through VC-Ethernet modules. The latest VCM 3.00 and 3.01 have this restriction.
