BL460 G8 second HBA mezzanine card

Hello all,  I need help with 3 BL460 G8 blades on a HPC7000, we recently installed a second FC mezznine card for all the 3 blades. everything seems to be ok except that the cards are pointing to Bay 5 and 6. We dont have anything on Bay 6 and on Bay 5 we have a fiber switch.  Is there a way to change the port mapping to use bay 3 and bay 4 instead of bay 5 and bay 6


Please let me know if this is possible and how can I make the changes.



Attached is a port-map screen print for one of the blades.

thank you

The connections are hard wired, no way to change.

Hope this helps!

Re: BL460 G8 second HBA mezzanine card

I have the same situation, I want to use 3 HBAs per blade,  the second mezzanie card maping to bay 5 and 6.

I moved the 20-port FC module from bay 4 to bay 5. still only 2 HBA connect downtrean to server.


Any resolution on your end?

seem like a waste have to buy additional FC module to fill bay 4 , when we have 6 unsue  empty FC ports.
