For HCP systems with 10G back-end switches (Brocade ICX 6430 or HP 4208VL), the HCP G11 Node Ethernet ports can be set up for two different 10GbE back-end configurations. The pictures below show both of the possible ways to configure Ethernet ports on an HCP G11 Node with local storage.

In the following pictures, ports with red frames indicate the front-end network connections, ports with blue frames in the pictures are for the back-end network connection. The port with the purple frame is the management port.

Note: The purple port should not be used unless you are configuring the system to have an [hcp_management] network.

The blue PRI label denotes the primary port of the back-end network, which should be connected to the Brocade ICX 6430 switch in rack position U27 or the left half of the HP 4208VL switch in rack position U37. The blue SEC label denotes the secondary port of the back-end network, which should be connected to the Brocade ICX 6430 switch in rack position U28 or the right half of the HP4208VL switch in rack position U37.

The following image shows an HCP G11 Node with 10 G BASE-T ports for both front-end and back-end connections. The 10 G ports used for the back-end Ethernet networking run at 1G when connected to either the Brocade ICX 6430 or HP 4208VL switches. The orange ports are for HCP with SAN-attached storage systems.



The following image shows an HCP G11 Node with 10 G BASE-T ports for back-end connection and 10 G SFP+ ports for the front-end connection. The 10 G ports used for the back-end Ethernet networking run at 10 G when connected to either the Brocade ICX6430 or HP 4208VL switches. The orange ports are for HCP with SAN-attached storage systems.



The bonding of the ports on the back-end Ethernet networking are different for the two configurations. Pay close attention to the network configuration when performing the Ethernet cabling.
