Mix of BL460G6 and BL460G7 with FlexFabric

Ramu had a question regarding mixing of blades:




A requirement calls for installing BL460cG6 and BL460cG7 in a same enclosure with VC FlexFabric modules. Can we create FCoE connections and Ethernet connections for BL460cG7 servers & Ethernet connections for BL460cG6 servers.


I feel logically it should work, any inputs?




Dave replied:




                When using FCoE or iSCSI on G7 and FlexFabric, the FCoE or iSCSI will always be configured on the ‘b’ ports(1b – 2b). They will need to be configured in the FCoE or iSCSI sections below the Ethernet ports in the profile. This will leave 6 available ports to configure for Ethernet(1a, 2a, 1c, 2c, 1d & 2d).


                The ‘b’ ports will not show up or will not be available as Ethernet ports in the profile. The G6 servers will only have the 6 Ethernet ports and will not use the ‘b’ ports as it is not a CNA LOM.




is this clear for you? Any other questions or comments?
