I/O module bay 2 configuration options

I/O module bay 2 supports an optional I/O module, such as an Ethernet switch or pass-thru module, that connects to the Ethernet controllers on the Ethernet expansion card option in each of the blade servers.

Note: If you install an I/O module in I/O module bay 2, you will also need to install an expansion card option, such as the 2/4 Port Ethernet Expansion Card, in each blade server that will access the external Ethernet network through the switch module in I/O module bay 2.

You must use a filler in the bay if no I/O module is installed.
