I asked our local vendor for the price of another blade for our modular server, and was told Intel was no longer supporting them, and parts were not available. Is this correct? Are there no parts available for a mfsys25, either for expansion or repair?
The last order date was November 01, 2013. You can't order any new parts for expansion.
For repair, you still have the full 3-year warranty from date of purchase, that's not affected by the discontinuance.
