I have an HP C7000 enclosure which I recently upgraded with a pair of HP Flex-10 Virtual Connect Ethernet modules (HP PN: 455880-B21).
Each module has 16 downlink ports to connect to server blades via the midplane and 8 uplink ports to connect to other network switches. I'd like to know if it's possible to directly cable other servers to the uplink ports on the VC ENet modules and if so, how do I accomplish this? I've tried creating additional ethernet networks within the virtual connect UI but I can't get any packets to flow to/from the server plugged into those ports.
Essentially I want to treat the VC modules as layer 2 switches.
