Issue Description

FusionCloud solution for VDI POC project code  : 5629970, Subproject code : 451964D,  Project name :  CNT VDI for DaaS Testbed Project consist in the installation of FusionCompute, FusionManager, FusionAccess and FusionStorage; using Mezzanine Cards MZ316 on CNA blades works fine and can be detected as inic1 this one works as 12 virtual network card over only one physical network card. Installing FusionStorage demands that 2 network cards should be configured to quarantine the traffic form service and management from the traffic of storage plane; using MZ316 virtual network card are generated with the same MAC Address so it’s not available to separate the traffic.

Solution
Remove the four MZ316,2*10GE Intelligent Network Mezzanine Card from each CNA Blade and replace with others that have 2 physical network card, in this case use MZ110,4*GE Port Mezzanine Card, PCIE 2.0 X4; the recommendation form this scenario is to use MZ510 or MZ512 that were fully tested with the solution.
