You buy mezzanine NIC cards for them, there's a list of them at http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/poweredge-m610/pd.

The mezzanine slots are at the back, there's a Broadcom NIC in Mezz1 slot in this image.

Oops, that was a M610, same applies to the M620 though, you need mezzanines in the blades plus extra switches in the back to use more than the two onboard NIC ports.

Ok Thx for your reply

I have one server which is not able to take ip from DHCP still taking 169..... . Normally The 2embedded cards are enough do you know what could be the cause?

Maybe you've run out of addresses or it isn't connected properly. Set a static IP address and then try pinging it from another blade.
