c7000 Blade Chassis - Missing Virtual Connect Link

Hi,

We seem to be missing the link the for the Virtual Connect Manager..

I have been to Enclosure Settings/Enclosure IP Settings/IPV4/Interconnect Bays

Both Bay 1 and 2 have EBIPA address in there and they ping back ok.

They also have the tick in the enabled box.

 

The interconnect bays have "Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP" in them and they all work ok.

 

Firmware :

OBA - 4.90 - Dec 11 2018

BladeSystem c7000 Onboard Administrator Tray 1.7
BladeSystem c7000 Insight Display 2.4.3

 

Is there something missing? 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

what is the model VC modules in the Interconnct bays ?

what happens when you put the IP address of the VC module in the browser?

Can you attach the OA show all logs from the enclosure?

Hi 

Thanks for responding.

The module in the interconnect bays are Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP.

When I put the IP into the browser I get "Page cannot be displayed". I have tried firefox, chrome and IE.

I cant see any option to attach files. 

When I goto Enclosure Information\Interconnect Bay Summay - the management URL is showing http://0.0.0.0 

I am wondering if  Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 actually supports VC?  Maybe I need to set the management URL somehow. Unfortunately for me the server is 4000 miles away in a different country.

Are there any CLI commands I could try?

To access VCM, you need to have Virtual connect Modules in the interconnect bays. 

Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 modules cannot be managed by VCM.  You should have atleast 1 VC module to access the VCM.. This is the reason  why you do not see a link to VCM.
