using M620 for m1000e in VRTX

Hi All,

I have several m620 that going to be pulled out of M1000e soon and retired.

I'm considering to buy an VRTX chassis so I can reuse these nodes in the office environment as a workstation/experimental host.  I looked through materials available online and it appears that I will need to add pcie mezzanine cards. Different sources refer to 6YCP8 and/or 3N9XX so which one will I need or will I need both of them ?

Will I need a different bios/firmware for m620 to run in VRTX  ?

Hi,

You will need this kit 330-BBBM Which has two of the adapters. Also it would be best to update the BIOS to the latest version. https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/drivers/driversdetails?driverId=9DWNX&osCode=WS8R2&produc...
