HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet Module for cClass 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.

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.
NOTE: Supported module-to-module and multi-enclosure stacking configurations may be found in the
HP Virtual Connect for c-Class BladeSystem Setup and Installation Guide which can be downloaded at the
following address: HP Virtual Connect for c-Class BladeSystem and Installation Guide

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

Trunking and Failover
Features
GUI and CLI session timeout
Shared Uplink Sets using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) 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.

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
The location and status of Virtual Connect Modules in the HP c-Class Enclosure
and Onboard Administrator can be viewed from the Hardware Status page.

mouse-over pop-up windows.
MAC Address Administration allows local administration of predefined or userdefined MAC address ranges.
VC manager runs as a high-availability pair when an HP VC- Flex-10 10Gb
Ethernet 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.
Up to 128 Network Access Groups can be defined to prevent enabling specific
network combinations in the same server profile
