i'm planing to purchase Dell m1000e blade server, if i want to connect the server to a SAN server via Fibre Channel Blade Switch Modules should i install fiber channel host bus adapter (mezzanine card) to each server?

Yes, of course - for each server that you plan on hooking up to the SAN. And you'll also need some form of SAN connectivity in the blade chassis. There's passthru options and built-in FC switches.

  • if i decided to go with iSCSI SAN storage array option for the same DELL m1000e, is there ant special networking requirements for each server or the system enclosure? Dec 2, 2014 at 12:18
  • Post that as a new question. Although you may want to simply try reading the product documentation.
