The following PCIe card installation and mixing rules apply to the Oracle Server X5-4:
No mixing of Emulex and Qlogic versions of the Sun Storage 16 Gb Fibre Channel PCIe Universal HBA in the system. Only one vendor's option card can be used per system.
No mixing of FC SFP+ and FCoE SFP+ on the same Sun Storage 16 Gb Fibre Channel Universal HBA.
However, you can have a mix of a single vendor's Sun Storage 16 Gb Fibre Channel Universal HBA in the system (either Qlogic or Emulex); one installed with FC SFP+ and one installed with FCoE SFP+.
For Qlogic adapters: 7101676, 7101680, 7101678 FCoE
For Emulex adapters: 7101686, 7101688 FCoE
No mixing of the Sun Storage 16 Gb Fibre Channel PCIe Universal HBA with the Sun Storage 16 Gb FC PCIe HBA in the system.
Oracle Server X5-4 supports either Oracle Flash Accelerator F320 PCIe Cards or Oracle 1.6 TB and 3.2 TB NVMe SSDs. Installing both in the same system is not supported.
Oracle Quad 10 Gb or Dual 40 Gb Ethernet Adapter cards are not supported on servers with Oracle VM preinstall.
The following PCIe card and slot population rules are recommendations based on factory tested configurations.
