c3000 class Bladesystem VC Options help

Hi experts,


Need some help over here....


Would a customer be able to buy a c3000 enclosure together with only one unit of 406740-B21 HP 1GB Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem?


Will the configuration be valid? Cause i read from the quickspecs mentioning that it is recommended to order in quantities of 2.


Thanks in advance...

This is a valid solution since you are selecting the C3000 enclosure. With the C7000 enclosure you would need 2 modules but in the C3000 there are only 8 half-height blqdes with dual-NIC which will al be connected to the 16 ports on the 1 module...
