We have a configuration problems with the BNT VF 10Gb Switch Module combined with the Emulex 10GbE VFA on an IBM HS22 x 2 Nodes Blade Server (IBM BladeCenter H)
The problem is we cannot make the Emulex 10GbE VFA (with 8 vNICs x 2 Nodes = 16 vNICs) Link-Up with the BNT VF 10Gb Switch Module.
-In the UEFI Network Config of the Emulex the Link is Down.
-The IBM HS22 has an ESXi v5.1 installed the State of all 16 vNICs are Link Down.
We appreciate your advice.
Thank you very much.

Re: IBM BladeCenter H with BNT VF 10Gb Switch Module & Emulex 10GbE VFA2012-09-22T07:29:10Z in response to chrischeunghkCan you provide the configuration of the BNT virtual fabric switch module? Also, please check the firmware version of the Emulex VFA. I have seen the latest firmware having some issues, so you can try v 4.0.1062.0 from this link:
