Stacking Virtual Connect Flex-10 & Flex-10/10D modules

Mike had a customer enclosure stacking question:

 

***************

 

Customer has an existing enclosure with Flex-10 modules.  They want to add second enclosure with the new Flex-10/10D modules and have it join the existing VC Domain.  Will this work? Any issues?

A snippet from page 56 of the VC 3.70 User Guide:

 

Multiple enclosure guidelines

Observe the following guidelines when connecting multiple enclosures:

  • • Each enclosure must have at least one supported VC-Enet, Flex-10, or FlexFabric module installed.
  • • All VC-Enet, Flex-10, or FlexFabric modules must be interconnected (redundantly stacked).
  • • All enclosures must have the same FC and FlexFabric module configuration. For example, if bays 1 and

2 of the Primary Enclosure contain FlexFabric modules, then bays 1 and 2 of Remote Enclosures 1, 2,

and 3 must also contain FlexFabric modules.

  • • All enclosures must have the same HP VC Flex-10/10D module configuration. For example, if bays 1

and 2 of the Primary Enclosure contain HP VC Flex-10/10D modules, then bays 1 and 2 of Remote

Enclosures 1, 2, and 3 must also contain HP VC Flex-10/10D modules.
