Virtual Connect Flexfabric modules and Fibre Channel Login RE-distribution on Integrity Blades

Chuck had a FIbre Channel question for Integrity blades:

 

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

 

Can someone confirm that the Virtual Connect Flexfabric module ibre Channel Login RE-distribution setting of "Automatic" is only available with

VC FlexFabric modules and not Virtual Connect modules?

 

The customer is running Integrity Blades.

Hi Chuck

 

"Automatic " login re-distribution is only available on the VC FlexFabric modules  On the other VC Fibre Channel modules only "Manual" login re-distribution is available.  This configuration is not dependent on the server models installed (same for BL460 or BL860 i2).

Other comments or questions?

Here is from the VCM 3.15 User Manual page 30 regarding "Link Distribution":

 

Specifies the login re-distribution scheme for load balancing. Valid values include

"Auto" and "Manual". The default login re-distribution is "Manual".

The HP 4Gb VC-FC Module, HP Virtual Connect 4Gb FC Module, HP VC 8Gb 20-Port

FC Module, and HP VC 8Gb 24-Port FC Module support only Manual login

re-distribution. The HP VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module supports both Auto and

Manual login re-distribution schemes.
