Nic 3 and Nic4 Mezz 2 not mapped

Hi,

 

I have a C7000 running 3.7.1 and have 4 x HP1/10GB VC-Enet Modules on Bay 1,2,5,6.  2 x HP Virtual Connect 4GB FC Modules on Bay 3,4.  I have BL460 G6 with FC (Qlogic QMH2462) on Mezz slot 1 and Dual nic(NC360MM) on Mezz slot 2.

 

When I try to add Nic 3 and Nic 4, I get Not Allocated for Allocated Bandwidth in the Ethernet Adapter Connections section.  I've included a picture.  What's weird is I have similiar BL460c G6 in this enclosure that don't have this issue.

 

Thanks,

Eugene

(NC360MM) on Mezz slot 2 :

Port 1 & 2  ===> Interconnect 5 & 6

Port 3 & 4  ===>  Interconnect 7 & 8

Re: Nic 3 and Nic4 Mezz 2 not mapped

I don't understand your answer?

 

Port1 is going into Interconnect 1 (Bay1), Port 2 is going into Interconect 2 (Bay2), Port 3 is going into Interconect 5 (Bay5) and Port 4 is going into Interconect 6 (Bay6).

Re: Nic 3 and Nic4 Mezz 2 not mapped

When you install a card on Mezzanine 2 you obtain 4 ports , so Port 1 & 2 from your NIC is going into Interconect 5 & 6

Port 3 & 4 is going into interconnect 7 & 8

Currently I have BL460c G6 working with a card installed on Mezz2 and Port 1&2 are going to Interconnect 1 & 2 and Port 3 & 4 are going into interconnect 5&6.

Thanks for the help. I have both showall outputs on notepad but don't see an option to attach a file in private message.

Eugene,

 

The on-board NICs of the 460 ALWAYS map to Bay 1 and 2 (hardwired). Mezzanine 1 maps to bay3 and 4,

mezzainie 2 will map to either bay5 and 6 (for dual-port options) or bays 5, 6, 7 and 8 if quad port options.

 

Regards,

 

Louis

Hi Louis,

Yes, that's my understanding , but currently I have 3 BL460c G6 where Nic3 and Nic4 are not mapped. I've attached a picture in the original first post.

Thanks,

Eugene,

 

Maybe Mezzanine slot 2 is defective or Device bay?

 

Doesn't make much sense otherwise.

Re: Nic 3 and Nic4 Mezz 2 not mapped

I think I figured out the problem.  I swapped out the Mezz 2 card (NC360m Dual Port 1Gb Nic) and replaced it with NC373m Dual Port Multifunction 1GB Nic, Nic3 and Nic4 started to work.  

 

I'm thinking the new NC360m I ordered have a higher firmware level which is not compatible with my combinatin OA\VC enclosure firmware level or I ran the  SmartStart Firmware DVD v10.00 and it hosed the NC360m card.  The weird thing is I have 3 blades with the NC360m working in Mezz 2.

 

Thanks for all your guys help on this.
