HP BladeSystem - Cisco branded interconnects support?

Frank had a Cisco support question:

 

*************

 

Hello Team,

 

If a customer is a 3120, or a FEX , or a Cisco MDS in our BladeSystem, can they choose to cover those components under their existing Cisco support?

Steve replied:

Yes they can.

The Cisco FEX is assumed to be covered by existing Smartnet support, as it considered a line card to the Nexus switch it is attached to.

For all other switches, these carry an HP warranty underwritten by Cisco, but a customer can elect to go to Cisco and purchase a smartnet contract directly.
