    Hi Guys.

    we have 2 modules which are showing as CORE BLADEs , rightnow there is no single host connected to this but we have a requirement to use any available ports so can we use this module ports for host connections ?

    Also why they are differentiate by SW BlADE TYPE ??

    Core Blade cannot be used for host or storage connections, port on CB are intended only for ICL = Inter Chassis Link connectivity.

    --->>>Also why they are differentiate by SW BlADE TYPE ??

    Each Blade Type have different name and Blade ID, i.e. Switch Blade, Application Blade, etc.

    for details refer Switch Types and Product Names
