c3000 mixing VC and non-VC - Not in adjacent bays

Hi,

 

I have found two setup and installation guides that are more or less the same:

http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c04731477-1.pdf

http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-a00018702en_us-1.pdf

and they are not conclusive (page 15) on the following re supported configurations:

In a C3000, can I I have two VC Flex-10 modules in Bay 1 and Bay 2, and have two non-VC (i.e. GBE2c switches) in Bay 3 and bay 4 at the same time? I know I cannot mix in Bay 1/2 or Bay 3/4.

 

One of the PDFs says that both for a C3000 or a C7000 "*"Other" indicates any VC interconnect module for c-Class BladeSystem".

The other PDF says that this is only true for a C3000 and that for a C7000 "In the following tables, "Other" indicates any c-Class interconnect module including a VC, Pass-Thru, or switch"

Anyone has a config running with VC modules in Interconnect Bay 1 and 2 and non-VC in Bay 3 and 4?

 

Thanks,

Ruben

Yes you can do that

The trick is in mezzanine card on blade

Can you elaborate on the Mezzanine "trick"?

I was planning on using the two on board 10GB nics on the BL460cG8, to talk to the first VC interconenct in bay 1 and then a 2-port 10GB Mezzanine in the first Mezz slot (to get to the 10GB VC in the 2nd interconenct bay). Then a 4 port 1GB ethernet port Mezz in the 2nd Mezzanine slot to talkk to the GBE2c switches in interconenct slot 3 and 4.

That's right you need to carrefully install Mez card to match to 4 an 3
chassis interconnect slots

No all blade can be capable to do that
