I have a C7000 blade system with an HP VC Flex-10 Enet Module connected to our Cisco Core. I have a DL380 Gen9 with a HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 534FLR-SFP+ Adapter and DAC cables.  It also have a 4 port 331i adapter.  Should I be able to connect the DL380 via the HP VC Flex-10 Enet Module?

You can connect the DL380 directly to the Flex-10 card, but it'd be better to connect it to the same switch that the Flex-10 card connects to, unless you need a direct connection to a particular blade in the chassis or you don't have the correct interfaces at your core.

It really depends on what you need to achieve though.

I asked HP tech support the same question and they left a voice mail saying 'nope'.  I can connect directly to my core like you stated.  Thanks.
