For more information on the association between the server blade
mezzanine connectors and the interconnect bays, see the HP
BladeSystem enclosure setup and installation guide that ships with
the enclosure. During server blade installation, the location of the
mezzanine card determines the installation location of the switch
modules.
For specific switch port connection information for each blade, see
the HP BladeSystem enclosure setup and installation guide that ships
with the enclosure. Connections differ by blade type.
Observe the following guidelines:
All HP ProCurve switches in the enclosure require valid and
unique IP addresses before they can be accessed via Ethernet.
By default DHCP is enabled on these switches, so the switch
management interface can get IP credentials from the DHCP
server on the attached Ethernet network. If EBIPA is enabled on
the Onboard Administrator (OA) of the enclosure, OA will
assign an IP address to the switch from its configured IP
address range, so that switch can be accessed from the OA
Ethernet interface. If EBIPA is disabled but DHCP service is
available on the network attached to the OA Ethernet interface,
then the switch gets its IP address assigned from the attached
network. Any IP host on that network can access the switch at
this point. If the DHCP service is not available on the attached
network, the user can assign valid IP credentials from the
