VC Flex10 Ethernet module + HP-UX 11.31 + Network speed

Hi,

 

As I have little knowledge of Blade server network configuration. And we have got a requirement to upgrade our current LAN speed from 1GBPS to 10GBPS on Blade server.

 

We have Blade server 860c i2 in chassis 7000 with 10Gb Flex-10 Virtual Connect Ethernet Modules. And currently four aggregated (LACP) 1GBPS uplinks have been configured on each Flex10 Ethernet module. The uplinks connect to a network switch (each 1GB port).

 

If I just change the uplinks connecting to a network switch capable of (10GB port). And change the network settings for Blade server configuration from speed 1GBPS to 10GBPS will that work? So that we can get blade server with 10GB network connection speed.

Please let me know how we can make these changes.
