Info on which BladeSystem network modules have 10Gb downlinks

Arman on our BladeSystem team put together this info on which BladeSystem network modules have 10Gb downlinks to the blade servers. Just to clarify: The Flex-10 capability of the BL460cG6 embedded NC532i Dual Port Flex-10 10GbE Multifunction Server Adapter requires the use of HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet modules. Each port is auto-sensing 1Gb/10Gb, and can interoperate with 1Gb HP BladeSystem c-Class interconnect components. There are only three IO modules that have 10Gb downlinks: (a) - P/N 455880-B21 - HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module for the c-Class BladeSystem (b) - P/N 516733-B21 - HP ProCurve 6120XG Blade Switch (b) - P/N 538113-B21 - HP 10GbE Pass-Thru Module The downlinks in the following IO modules are all 1Gb, so the BL460cG6 LOMs will auto-sense to 1GbE when used with any of them: (c) - P/N 410916-B21 - Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP c-Class BladeSystem (c) - P/N 410917-B21 - HP GbE2c Ethernet Blade Switch for c-Class BladeSystem (c) - P/N 438030-B21 - GbE2c Layer 2/3 Ethernet Blade Switch for c-Class BladeSystem (c) - P/N 438031-B21 - HP 1:10 Gb Ethernet BL-c Switch (c) - P/N 451438-B21 - Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3120G for HP (c) - P/N 451439-B21 - Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3120X for HP (c) - P/N 516733-B21 - HP ProCurve 6120G/XG Blade Switch ______________________________________________________________ (a) indicates support for Flex-10 (i.e. four Flex-NICs sharing 10Gbps in 100Mb increments) (b) indicates support for one 1/10GbE only (c) means support one 1GbE only ______________________________________________________________
