CBS3110G and IBM BladeCenter Chassis Internal Network

Hello.

Is possible to configure a chassis internal network (CIN) with Cisco CBS3110G switches in an IBM BladeCenter?

CBS3110G and IBM BladeCenter Chassis Internal Network

Hi,

Yes, the 3100 series is built for IBM blade centers.

These switches are also stackable.

Re: CBS3110G and IBM BladeCenter Chassis Internal Network

Thanks for your reply, Reza.

I was asking about a specific config for the switches and the BladeCenter. CIN is a tagged VLAN between the blade servers and the AMM.

http://download.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/systems/support/system_x_pdf/cin_whitepaper_7.1.pdf

In that document from IBM there are details about CIN config. Specifically, it has details about older Cisco part numbers, not the actual ones.

On the older models, ports 1 to 14 are connected to the blades, 15 and 16 are connected to the AMM and 17 to 20 are external. On the newer (Cisco 3110x), ports 1 to 14 are connected to the blades and ports 15 to 18 are external. Ports 19 and 20 connected to the AMM, but are not user configurable.

There is no info on the internet about CIN on the 3110's. For other models, like Nexus 4K, there is a specific guide.

Does this switches support CIN and how?
