Device bay port mapping graphical view for c7000 Enclosure
Half-height server blade
In this diagram, N equals the number of the server blade in the enclosure and the port number on the switch. For example, if a server blade is inserted into slot 1, it is considered device 1, and the ports that will be used in switch 1 and switch 2 are ports 1 and 1, respectively. If a server blade is inserted into slot 2, then the ports used on switch 1 and switch 2 are ports 2 and 2. This convention changes for the full-height server blades as seen in the next diagram.
Full-height server blade
In this diagram, N equals the number of the blade in the enclosure and the port number for the switch. For example, if a blade is inserted into slot 1, it is considered device 1. Because full-height server blades take up the space of two half-height server blades, the enclosure is limited to a maximum of eight full-height server blades. Port mapping from these full-height server blades might initially appear to be different than the half-height server blades, but they use very similar conventions.
Just as in a half-height server blade, if a blade is inserted into slot 1, it is considered device 1, but it has a second set of ports that will also map to switches 1 and 2. With the full-height server blade, an N/N+8 scheme is used on the switches. Therefore, server blade 1 will map to ports 1 and 9 on both switches, as N=1. For a server blade inserted into slot 2, the four ports used on switches 1 and 2 would then be 2 and 10, as N=2.
