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.

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

Security Features
HTTPS (HTTP exchanged over an SSL-encrypted session) is required for
access to the Virtual Connect Manager.
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
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.
Trunking and Failover
Features
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.
Configure uplink speeds to Auto, 1Gb,or10Gb on the associated uplinks
802.1Q VLAN supported on uplinks.
VLAN Features
Uplink ports can be configured for VLAN tagging at egress or pass-thru of
tagged VLAN packets from Server ports.
Management Features
Native VLAN support for untagged packets on a shared uplink set. Packets
can be targeted to a specific server ports.
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
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. 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 VC-Enet
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.
