do i have a mistake-two vc flexfabric ???

There are two vc flexfabric in bay 1 and bay2. I confige the esxi vmnic on the port 1 and the port 3 of the bl 685g7's lom .

Question: when  the Bay1 vc is disabled,the flow on the esxi vmnic will go through the Bay2 vc? 

should i confige the esxi vmnic on the port 1 and the port 4 or on the port 1 and the port 2?

It will not flow through: the odd ports (1,3) on the LOM go to the Bay 1 interconnect and the even ports (2,4) on the LOM go to the Bay 2 interconnect.  

 

So for redundancy you want to team up an odd with an even so ports 1 and 2, which should show as vmnic 0 and 1.

i ask some hp exports.they said if the uplink port of vc is down,the flow will go to the uplinked switch through the bay2 vc.

but if the vc module is down,game is over.
