Can I use the older 10 GB blade switch (445860-B21) with the newer G7 blades (10GB LOM)?
Apparently that switch is not supported on the bay 1 or 2 of the c7000 enclosure, but maybe because at that time there were no 10 GB nics on-board?

So it seems that I can only use a 10gb pass-through module or the VirtualConnect with the G7 blades.
Any other suggestion? What would be an inexpensive 10 gb switch I could use?

The old, double-wide 10GbE switch will only work with the NC512m, the Chelsio S320m and two or three other third-party mezzanine cards, of that era the names of which escape me at the moment.

Well, after reading about VC, I decided that I may want QoS and, as all the VC features are provided by VMware, there is no point in having VC.
Of course, I am a novice here and I may be wrong so feel free to correct me.
