Advisory: HPE c-Class BladeSystem - Cable Type for Emulex Ethernet Adapters in an HPE c-Class BladeSystem Enclosure Is Blank Within the VMware vSphere 6.5 Command Line Interface (CLI)
NOTICE: The information in this document, including products and software versions, is current as of the Release Date. This document is subject to change without notice.

Release Date: 2016-11-01

Last Updated: 2016-10-30


DESCRIPTION

The "Cable Type" property value for all Emulex Ethernet adapters in an HPE c3000 or HPE c7000 enclosure will display as blank in the vmnic properties within the VMware vSphere 6.5 Command Line Interface (CLI).

This occurs because the "Cable Type" options are part of the operating system and the driver calls the OS for the value. The value should display as "backplane;" however, this option is not available within VMware vSphere 6.5.

SCOPE

Any HP ProLiant c-Class server blade running VMware vSphere 6.5 and configured with any of the following adapters:

 

  • HP NC553i 10Gb 2-port FlexFabric Converged Network Adapter
  • HP Flex-10 10Gb 2-port 552M Adapter
  • HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 554M Adapter
  • HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650FLB Adapter
  • HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650M Adapter

 

 

RESOLUTION

This is a display issue only and does not impact the operation or functionality of the system.

A future update of VMware vSphere 6.5 will add the "backplane" option to the list of values for this property type.

This advisory will be updated when additional solutions become available.
