does M8428-K support NPAR with 57810-K CNAs?

hello,

does the dell/brocade M8428-K switch support CNA Nic partitioning when connected to dell/brocade 57810-K CNA installed on M620 blades?

I need to partition the 10Gbe ports in two part (4 gbit/s minimum FC and 6 gbit/s minimum ethernet); I know I can do it on the CNA side from the blade bios setup, but cannot find any info on the switch side of the configuration

thanks

emilio

Based on these document, it looks like the nic partitioning will work without any additional switch configuration. The switch will just see additional MAC addresses coming in on the port.
