I was looking to purchase the X1052 for fiber 10GB connectivity for one T630 server (workstations will use 1gb). can you recommend what NIC, SFP+ transceiver,and what cable to use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The switch support SR, LR, ER, and USR. Here are some links for those transceivers.

How long is the run from the switch to the server?
any reason why i would get a two port card if im only connecting to a switch (and not peer to peer)? could i bond two links to the switch and use one ip address? (link aggregation/nic teaming seem to refer on bonding two nics not two physical ports on a single nic?
Looking at the specs on those parts, it would seem that they should work. But I don't have any validation documentation for 3rd party parts, which means I cannot guarantee that they are compatible and will work.
