    That looks about right (Your interface is slightly different to mine).
    I'm at a loss now pretty much. Are you able to connect to the network module web interfaces?

    Strangely I've imaged some of the blades and haven't renamed them but when booting up complain of duplicate network names?

    (I put in our normal gateway address instead of the MM unit Duh!)

    This is via the web console.

    Externally I can now ping the actual NIC modules and I'm currently looking at the web console for the first module. Why is this working and the HS20 Blade doesn't?

    I think that access the the management interfaces of the modules is through the bladecentre backplane, via the management module, not through the external ports. Odd i know but would explain your quandry.

    Keep trying

    Glad to hear it mate. What's the plan for the fully stacked chassis anyway? Sounds like you've got quite a lot of power at your disposal now.

    Well I'm looking to run them all as TS servers? I think it'll manage around 210 concurrent users which for the price I paid is a very good deal .
