For HCP systems with 10G back-end switches (Brocade VDX 6740, Cisco Nexus 5548UP, or Cisco Nexus 5596UP), the HCP G11 Node Ethernet ports can be set up for two different 10GbE back-end configurations. The pictures in this section show all 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 for an [hcp_management] network.

The blue PRI label denotes the primary port of the back-end network, which should be connected to the Brocade VDX 6740 switch in rack position U27, or the Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch in rack position U27, or the Cisco Nexus 5596UP 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 VDX 6740 switch in rack position U28, or the Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch in rack position U28, or the Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch in rack position U39. The orange ports are for HCP with SAN-attached storage systems.

The following image shows an HCP G11 Node with 10 G SFP+ ports for back-end network connections.
