I/O bays to support SAN HBA in mezz slot 2 in BL460, and mezz Slots 2 and 3 in BL620

Nick needed a configuration confirmation:

Hi Folks

 

Correct me if I am wrong.  Just to be sure??

 

If I install a  dual port SAN HBA in Mezz 2 of a BL460 G7 server.   I need to install the SAN switches in I/O bays 5 and 7, and NOT in bays  5 and 6 correct???

 

And if that is the case, a BL620 in the same C7000 with a SAN HBA installed in both mezz 2 and 3 will also be able to leverage the same two SAN switches installed in 5 and 7 and the BL620 will have 4 active ports on the two switches.

 

Kind of urgent, hope someone can help with a quick confirmation!!!

 

Thanks

Mezz1 maps to IO 3\4

Mezz2 maps to IO 5\6

Mezz3 maps to IO 7\8

 

With dualport adapters in a c7000 with no double dense blades.
