Attention:

A four-digit feature code is used to specify a component that is configurable in the IBM configurators, the eBusiness Configurator (eConfig) and the IBM Web-based Hardware Configurator, used in US and Canada. Options that do not have feature codes cannot be integrated by IBM into a system using these IBM configurators. To purchase options separately, refer to the option part number provided in this document.

Notes:

  1. One interposer is required per switch.
  2. A transceiver must be purchased directly from Cisco, or Cisco reseller.
  3. The connectivity module is exclusively supported by the advanced management module. Before you configure the connectivity module, make sure the advanced management modules in your BladeCenter unit are correctly configured. For more information about the advanced management module, see the User's Guide for your advanced management module and at http://www.ibm.com/systems/support/
  4. The direct connection to SAN devices is not supported. This option requires an NPIV aware external switch to operate correctly.
  5. The BladeCenter PCI I/O Expansion Unit provides two 64-bit/100MHz PCI-X slots. The expansion unit itself occupies one BladeCenter slot and attaches to the blade server. Both units are installed together into the BladeCenter chassis as a single unit occupying two BladeCenter slots.
  6. Only supported for Brocade 8Gb SAN Switches (44X1920,44X1921,42C1828)
  7. Only supported for QLogic 8Gb Intelligent Pass-thru Module for IBM BladeCenter(44X1907) and Qlogic 20-port 8Gb SAN Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter(44X1905)
  8. Form Factor abbreviations are as follows: SFF = Small Form Factor, StFF = Standard Form Factor, HSFF = High Speed Form Factor. The Standard Form Factor (StFF) card is the original form factor for expansion cards in blade servers. An StFF expansion card uses the PCI-X connector on the blade server and expansion units. When an StFF expansion card is installed using the PCI-X connector it is not possible to install a CFFh nor HSFF expansion card on the adjacent PCI-E connector (if one exists in the server) In addition, when an StFF expansion card is installed, the second hard disk drive on some blade servers cannot be installed.
