HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module
for c-Class BladeSystem
Overview
Simplify and make your data center change-ready. The HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module for the c-Class
BladeSystem is the simplest, most flexible connection to your networks. The Virtual Connect Flex-10 Ethernet Module is a
new class of blade interconnect that simplifies server connections by cleanly separating the server enclosure from LAN,
simplifies networks by reducing cables without adding switches to manage, allows you to change servers in just minutes, not
days, and tailors network connections and speeds based on application needs. HP Flex-10 technology significantly reduces
infrastructure costs by increasing the number of NICs per connection without adding extra blade I/O modules, and reducing
cabling uplinks to the data center network. The HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module for c-Class BladeSystem
is an innovative, new class of integrated interconnects from HP.

Port mapping differs slightly between full height and half height server blades due to the support
for additional Mezzanine cards on the full height version.
HP has simplified the processes of mapping Mezzanine ports to switch ports by providing
intelligent management tools via the Onboard Administrator and HP Insight Manager Software.

The following are supported configurations for the Virtual Connect Flex-10 Ethernet Module. Please note that other
interconnect options can be installed in the enclosure, but they do not inherit the benefits of Virtual Connect. Switches and
Pass-Thru modules will operate per their default configurations. Any moves, adds, or changes to servers which are
connected to non-Virtual Connect modules will require reconfiguration on the LAN and/or SAN. The Virtual Connect
Manager will only manage Virtual Connect Modules.

Stacking Configuration Stacking links are used to interconnect Virtual Connect Ethernet Modules when using more than
one enclosure or when using more than two Virtual Connect Ethernet Modules in a single
enclosure.
All Virtual Connect Modules within the VC Domain must be interconnected. Any combination of
1Gb and 10Gb cables can be used to interconnect the Virtual Connect Modules; however the
following provides recommended configurations (note that a built-in 10Gb link is provided between
modules in horizontally adjacent bays). Supported cable lengths on 10Gb uplinks are 3 to 15
meters and supported 10Gb stacking links (connecting between two HP Virtual Connect Ethernet
Modules) are 0.5 to 7 meters
Interconnecting the modules allows all Ethernet NICs on all server blades in the Virtual Connect
domain to have access to any Virtual Connect uplink port. By using these module-to-module links,
a single pair of uplinks can be used as the data center network connections for the entire Virtual
Connect domain, and allows any server blade to be connected to any Ethernet network.

HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module for
c-Class BladeSystem
Technical Specifications
Access to the Virtual Connect Manager is via the system Onboard
Administrator
Each user account can be configured for a combination of four
access privileges to control and/or view elements in the Virtual
Connect Manager.
User verification by account name and password (Case Sensitive)
LDAP Authentication services provide role based security via an
LDAP SSL Directory Server connection.
Private VLAN's for secure connectivity between servers within a domain
Trunking and Failover Shared Uplink Sets using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)
Features
allows the creation of Ethernet channeling with upstream switches that
conform to IEEE 802.3ad. Ports can alternatively be configured for
failover only.
External ports within a Port Set can be on the same VC Ethernet
module or on multiple VC modules within the VC domain.
In the event of an uplink failure to a data center switch, the next highest
performance uplink connection or aggregation will become active.
Fast MAC Cache failover enables rapid recovery of network connections
when a standby module becomes active.
Smart Link network senses a failed upstream switch connection and
allows teamed NICs to properly failover.
VLAN Features
Configure uplink speeds to Auto, 1Gb,or10Gb on the associated uplinks
802.1Q VLAN supported on uplinks.
Uplink ports can be configured for VLAN tagging at egress or pass-thru
of tagged VLAN packets from Server ports.
Native VLAN support for untagged packets on a shared uplink set.
Packets can be targeted to a specific server ports.
Management Features Simple and intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) for defining,
configuring, and managing all elements of the Virtual Connect Domain.
Setup Wizards for initial domain installation and configuration and
network configuration.
Comprehensive administration, definition, and management of Ethernet
Network, Shared Uplink Set, and Server Profiles
Embedded SNMP v1, v2 and SMI-S agents allow Network Management
applications to query Virtual Connect for statistics and trap information.
A robust, scriptable and secure Command Line Interface simplifies
management and enables macros to control common Virtual Connect
tasks
Any uplink port can be used as a dedicated mirrored port for traffic
analysis and troubleshooting by a Network Analyzer or Sniffer.
Domain Management of user accounts, enclosure, Virtual Connect
domain settings, and firmware updates

Enclosure and Onboard Administrator can be viewed from the Hardware
Status page. Including at-a-glance detailed information of the hardware
elements via mouse-over pop-up windows.
MAC Address Administration allows local administration of predefined or
user-defined MAC address ranges.
VC manager runs as a high-availability pair when an HP 1/10Gb VCEnet Module is installed in adjacent bays. All configuration data is stored
in flash memory and checkpointed to the standby module.
Configurations can also be backed up to a workstation via the GUI.
