Currently have Dell R720 servers connected to N4032F with Dell twinax cables and
Dell EqualLogic 6210 SAN's connected to N4032F with Dell twinax cables.
Want to connect EMC VNX 5400 ( has SFP+ ports with Fiber GBIC's )
Can I just remove the GBIC's from the EMC VNX and connect it with Twinax cable or do I need to put GBIC's in N4032F and connect them with Fiber??
Or do I need something else?? EMC asked if Dell stuff does active/active on their ports??
Solved! Go to Solution.
The following EMC white paper specifically says. "Supports SFP+ and Active TwinAx cables only (Passive TwinAx cables not supported)"
However Dell's SFP+ DACs are all passive. Meaning the DAC will not work for the connection between the EMC and N4032F.
I don't see why not. Here are some part numbers for the N4032F.
10GBASE-SR, is part number RK0CX.
10GBASE-LR, is part number 7002X.
10GBASE-LRM, is part number H8DRR.
10GBASE-ER, is part number 194JN.
I do not know what the corresponding part numbers are for the VNX5400.
