Dell M1000e blade Server

This question has been answered by DELL-Daniel C

dear all,

we have Dell Blade Server M1000e, 13 Servers 3 full height and 10 half height, I/O switches are A1,A2 B1B2 are MXL Blade switches and C1,C2 are Brocade Fiber switches.

half height servers are PowerEdge M630 Blade Server 

with 1. QLogic 57810-k Dual port 10Gb 

        2.QLogic 57810-k Dual port 10Gb KR CNA Mezz Card for M-Series Blades

        3. Emulex LPM16002 16Gbps Fibre Channel I/O Card

and the Full height is PowerEdge M820, Blade Server

        with 1.Broadcom 57810-k Dual port 10Gb KR 

              2.Emulex LPM16002 16Gbps Fibre Channel I/O Card

the Problem is at the first startup we got this message for full height servers only

"A fabric mismatch detected for mezzanine card B1 Dell Blade"

and the full height servers only cannot power on they keep red blinking 

what is the issue?

  • It sounds like the Emulex on the M820 may be installed in the wrong mezzanine card slot. Mezzanine card slots 1 and 3 supports Fabric C. Do you know what slot it is currently installed in? Here is some further info on removal and installation of the mezzanine cards.

  • thank you Daniel,

    i thought its impossible to be this but its true,

    because i thought the server got tested before when manufactured . but it looks no.

    any way i have changed the FC card to mezzainen C and it works fine

    thank you again. 

  • Thanks for the update. Glad to hear that was the issue.

    Cheers!

  • My company need to install M630 at power edge m1000e with S/T : FS1TL4J. I need your support for required upgrade to our chassis M1000e. I have I/O switch M6220 .can I install M630 with this switch or need upgrade ???

  • The M630 and M6220 are both compatible with the M1000e, and the M6220 will provide connectivity to the M630. Something to keep in mind is that the M6220 is a 1Gb switch, while the M630 offers 1Gb and 10Gb network daughter cards. Do you know which network daughter card is installed on the M630?

    Here is a M1000e I/O guide that is very handy.
