HP Virtual Connect Manager 3.10

Sunday morning I read an interesting article about a VMware installation based on HP BladeSystem with Virtual Connect Flex-10 modules. The article contained lots of screenshots and I saw serveral changes within Virtual Connect Manager. So I decided to upgrade the firmware of my entire HP BladeSystem including the blade servers and interconnect modules.

The update procedure tooks some time but I had no problems. At the end I started the Virtual Connect Manager and I couldn’t believe it! 🙂 HP changed lots of web sites to Adobe Flex! Woooowww… But I cannot understand why HP changed to Adobe Flex? The old HTML only version of Virtual Connect Manager runs fine and had a pretty nice look and feel. The new Adobe Flex based GUI is not 100%. I think HP should change the entire Virtual Connect Manager to Adobe Flex. The current solution is not my preferred implementation. 😉
