VC firmware compatibility question

Hi,

 

I've read the Firmware Compatibility Matrix here:

 

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/blades/bladesystemupdatestable.html

 

I am wondering about the compatibility of the VC Enet Module fw 3.15 with my VC modules, (PN: 455880-B21).  Looking at the support page for that part number, I find:

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3794431&prodTypeId=3709945&prodSeriesId=3794423&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4040

 

The above page lists a few fw versions,

 

* RECOMMENDED * HP BladeSystem c-Class Virtual Connect Firmware, Ethernet plus 4/8Gb 20-port and 8Gb 24-port FC Edition 3.15
10 Nov 2010 HP BladeSystem c-Class Virtual Connect Firmware, Ethernet plus 4/8Gb 20-port FC Edition 2.34
24 Sep 2010 HP BladeSystem c-Class Virtual Connect Firmware, Ethernet plus 8Gb 24-port FC Edition 2.34
24 Sep 2010

 

I am currently running version 2.34, but have issues, including the inability to power on some new G7 blades, because the VC profile cannot be applied.  Is fw 3.15 required for G7 blades, and can anyone tell me if my part supports that fw version?

 

Thanks,

 

Jeff

Re: VC firmware compatibility question

Jeff:

 

VC v3.15 does support the new G7 CNAs that are embedded. Also supports the new VC FlexFabric modules.

 

and it does support the VC Flex-10 module (455880-B21).

 

Here is a link to the CLI User Manual for VCM 3.15. It contains the release notes or changes for you.
