Question on Flexfabric module support in Bay 3/4 only

Steve had a Virtual Connect interconnect bay location question:




I have a Integrity customer that only wants to use the CNA/s Mezz Cards and two FlexFabric  modules in Bay 3 and 4 only. The HP Product Bulletin Quick Spec shows this as a valid configuration but I want to check with the Blade community to ensure that this will be in fact supported.




Mark replied:




It is supported as it was determined that customers might have environments where 10Gb is necessary with older servers that only had 1Gb LOMs. They didn't want to use the 1Gb LOMs but wanted Virtual Connect. That prompted us to release 3.x firmware where VCM would run in bays other than 1 or 2.




Are you using this type of configuration? Let us know how it works for you.
