NC553m Dual Port FlexFabric card support 8Gb vHBA

Thomas had a Fibre Channel question:




If NC553m dual port flexfabric card or BL490c G7 and BL620c G7 integrated NC553i card support 8GB vHBA when used with HP Virtual connect Flexfabric 10Gb/24-port Module?


Based on our previous testing, it support 4Gb only.  We want to know if there are new firmware released that can support 8Gb. Many thanks.


Description in PB:

Each FlexNIC and FlexHBA is recognized by the server as a PCI-e physical function device with adjustable speeds from 100Mb to 10Gb in 100Mb increments*

NOTE: Bandwidth adjustment supports speeds from 1Gb to 10Gb in 100Mb increments on NC553i 2-Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapters and NC553m 2-Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapter.


Best Regards.
