Heartbeat VLAN to be seen on 4 enclosures

I believe another way to phrase it is that they want the heartbeat VLAN to be seen on 4 enclosures.

Is this possible?

I am making the assumption you are using Virtual Connect.

Note this wouldn’t require a VCEM license.

Are you referring to Virtual Connect? If so, there is no license requirement to import slave enclosures into a Virtual Connect Domain. To manage a VC Domain via Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager will require a license, but that has no bearing on Multi-Enclosure Stack Domain.

And, if you are indeed referring to Virtual Connect, you need an external Ethernet switch to connect more than two enclosures/VC Domains together, while maintaining separate Virtual Connect Domains. It boils down to how VC manages Loop Prevention on the uplinks, which is referred to LAN Safe.
