Increase Shared Uplink Set from 1Gb to 10GB cabling

To all,

Want To Do:

  • Increase Shared Uplink Set from 1GB to 10Gb cabling.



  • c7000 blade chassis with two VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24-port modules.
  • Connected to two HP 5500 switches via Shared Uplink Sets.
  • Shared Uplink Sets are four 1Gb Ethernets, two sets for redundancy (8 total 1Gb lines).
  • Connections are trunked as two Link Aggregation Groups



  • Can I upgrade my 1Gb to 10Gb live without service interruption?
  • I read I can't have a mix of 1Gb and 10Gb in a group.  Does that mean no live interruption?
  • I have two LAGs.  Since I have two, will one stay up and handle traffic without interruption while I upgrade the other?

Thank you.
