Are BL blade servers interchangeable??

I have a BL p class chassis with 2 BL20p G4 servers in it. Do I have to stick with the exact same server or can I mix and match by putting BL20p G3 blades in?

I have had no problem mixing the blades between chassis. They only time you run into a problem is if you have an older chasis and want to put a BL30/35 in. You need to update the backplane to make those work.

Thanks John,

It is my understanding that you can put the 20,30, and 60's in the p class as long as it is a BL p class enclosure. I appreciate the help.

You can mix G3's and G4's as well as 20's, 25's, 30's, 35's, 40's(if you can find one), 45's and 60's... any server that uses the BladeEnclosure G2.
