    New Install - UCS / Nimble / When is a switch needed?

    Matt Jensen Newbie

      Hello,

       

      I will begin installing the Nimble CS240G-X2 with 2 Cisco Blade Chassis and 6248UP's.

       

      My question is, when is it appropriate to not use appliance ports in the configuration?

       

      We plan to utilize the nimble with the blades, and also 4 - IBM Servers with 10g ports. Can I just connect the 10g cards to the Fabric and get access to the nimble? Or should there be an upstream switch used?

       

      Thanks in advance, looking forward to the Nimble storage!
