IBM Blade Center

We run DMZ and Internal network totally seperate, I have a business request to connect an IBM Enclosure to DMZ switch (as trunk) and to Internal network switch ( as trunk) so that some blades can talk to DMZ and some to internal network. If I have two set of switches ie 4 switches in the blade center, can I plug in two switches to DMZ and two to Internal. Is it even possible? I think IBM blade center architechture allows that I wanted to know if someone has done it here.

Thanks.

It's possible - at least with Bladecenter and Nortel L2/3 Copper switches. You configure the Nortel switch accordingly (trunk groups) and which ports that the internal Blades ports (typically 1-14) should be a member of.

I have Cisco IGESM switches in them. Will it work with these switches?
