Virtual Connect Flex-10 - only 2 ports are present instead of 8.

Perez had a customer issue of not seeing all the Virtual Connect FlexNICs.




May be this issue has been already reported in forum and I’m still reading and looking for, but for the meantime I appreciate any response because CU is waiting for this.


It’s about a c7000 with full blades BL460c G1 and 4,  VC Flex-10 Enet Module installed in slot 1 to 4, all with FW 3.15. Only 3 blades server located in bays 5,6,7 have the Flex-10 card installed in Mezzanine 1 and the problem is that only two ports are visible instead of 8 from the OA and the VCM also.


Thank you in advance.




William had some advice for Perez:




If you attempt to modify the server profile, does it allow you to specify additional connections?  Using the newer firmware, this is Flash based, so you have to right click on the table header to get the option to add a connection.  Also, ensure that the blade is listed as “Configured for Virtual Connect” within the Onboard Administrator.




Have you seen this problem?? Comments or suggestions for Perez??
