Virtual Connect supported setup

Hari wanted to confirm a Virtual Connect configuration:






We have a customer setup with C7000 enclosure , in Bay1 and Bay 2 we are having the Pass through Ethernet modules.


In Bay 3 we are planning to keep the VC Ethernet 1/10 GB modules  and in Bay 5 and Bay 6 we will be having the VC FC modules .


As per my understanding with VC firmware 3.1 onwards the above configuration is supported one as we will move away from the bay dependency of virtual connect modules. Can anyone confirm on this.




Dave provided the confirmation:




Your correct,


From the ‘Description’, ‘Enhancement‘ Tab, third bullet:
