Not really. A lot of folks are using diff types of hardware. The folks using xcat are primarily using bladecenters. Most everyone has gone straight vmware ESX/ESXi.

We have mostly bladecenter E chassis
2 Ethernet switch module
1 Management modules
2 Power modules
2 Cooling modules
with HS21 or HS22 blades

Looks like your only missing the 2nd Ethernet switch module, this is needed for eth1. I think we normally go with the BNT L2/3 Copper GbESM switch, but I'll need to check.

It seems like a lot of the VCL instances are running on BladeCenter hardware. I have a chassis and a few blades but I suspect I do not have enough I/O modules to install the VCL to it. Does anyone have a list of the hardware they are using so I can compare it with what I have?

My config:

BladeCenter H chassis
5 JS21 blades
1 HS21XM blade
1 Ethernet switch module
1 Infiniband 4x module
2 Management modules
4 Power modules
2 Cooling modules

What am I missing? (I suspect I need another Ethernet switch module as I have only been successful in getting eth0 connected on a blade. I have not been successful in getting eth1 connected.)
