full width blade-Q

Hi, Cisco Folks:

Can someone please help me to clarify the following doubts?

Q1. What is the pinning order of B250-M1 to IOM  if I have 2 Server Ports with a fully populated chassis of 4 B250-M1?

I know that for a half-width, the pinning order will look like:

                                                  Pinned Blade #

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Server Link 1 or Port 1 of IOM       Blade 1,3,5,    7

Server Link 2 or Port 2 of IOM       Blade 2,4,6, & 8

OR

                Pinned Blade #

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Server Link 1 or Port 1 of IOM      Blade 1,3,5,    7

Server Link 2 or Port 2 of IOM      Blade 2,4,6, & 8

Q1.1

If I have the Server Link 1 connects to Port 1 of IOM, but Server Link 2 connects to Port 3 of IOM, will this change the pinning order?

Q1.2

If I have the Server Link 1 connects to Port 1 of IOM, but Server Link 2 connects to Port 4 of IOM, will this change the pinning order?

How about other combinations Like Port 2 of IOM (Sever Link 1) and Port 3 of IOM (Server Link 2)?

Q2. If I only install a Single M81KR in B250-M1, do I have to care about which Adapter Slot to install my PALO Card? My concern here is really Slot 1 is tied to IOM A and Slot B is tied to IOM B, is there such concept at all??

If there is such concept, then I would make sure that for a 4 blades setup, I would have 2 blades with PALO inserted into Slot 1 and the other 2 blades with PALO inserted into Slot 2,

Thanks.

KP,

In very simple words, its to share the load on different IOM to FI links.
