Customer want to use Bladecenter S+ HS23 blade , with Esxi 5.5 Sever installaed and all 800xa server virtualized.
Issues with Bladecenter is it can have only 2 Network which can be used out side and other 2 network is used for management network.
But our existing configuration has following networks
1 Client/Server Network Primary
2 Client/Server Network Secondary
3 Control Network Primary
4 Control Network Secondary
5 IEC61850 Network -1 (Ring Network)
6 IEC61850 Network -2 (Ring Network)
7 IEC61850 Network -3 (Ring Network)
8 IEC61850 Network -4 (Ring Network)
How this network can be connected to Blade which is only having two network ports. i am attaching the drawing as per by basic knowledge, can you please help on this.
Do we have any RNRP Router as a Hardware/Any router , which can be bought from ABB/Other vedor to get the connection to blade ?
Even though VLAN tagging could reduce the number of physical connections it is not a preferred solution (one storm may block all VLANs using same physical network connection).
If your server has two physical networks available for use you must limit your system to that or choose alternate hardware.
ABB is shortly releasing two routers, but that won't change much for you I'm afraid.
