I have attached an IBM Server Connectivity Module in Bay2 of our BladeCenter E and tried to setup some networking between an external unmanaged switch and the internal blade servers.
I plugged a cable between port 1 of IBM SCM and another port in the unmanaged switch. This switch have a 10.0.0.0/24 network. But nothing happened. I've fixed the IP address 10.0.0.2 in the second interface of a blade server and I was unable to ping anything. The LED's on the IBM SCM stays off.
I don't know what's wrong and why it isn't working. If I disable the IBM SCM, at least we get link down in the OS, but there's no IP communication at all.
