Problem linking M1000e MXL to S4810P

So we have had an M1000e with a MXL switch and a Dell S4810P switch for a good while and it was setup by a previous employee. It seems that the running config was not copied over the startup config so when the power went down longer than our UPSs, the connection between the two switches stopped working.

They are connected via 40Gbe and Dell-cable. No problem running it so far.

We have a very simple setup, both switches are in the same rack. We don't use VLAN, or have any special security set up. This is a closed network for our local servers. I have tested with two different cables.

If someone can look at the setup and help me get this up and running again it would be much appreciated.


I have connected both ports of the MXL to the S4810p switch, and here is the output of the configs:

No ideas at all? Seems like pretty basic functionality of a switch. I'll take any help I can get.

Hello thanks for choosing Dell.
The infromation given doesn't show much for us to help, I'm afraid.
https://dell.to/3QfG8t4

Please refer to the link above for basic configuration of switch. I don't think that there is no basic configuration on MXL switch
Furthermore, it would be best the tech support team can take a look at your logs. You can raise an official ticket through https://dell.to/45vkZ2y.

@DELL-Young E​ Thanks for your answer! I have read that document, but that doesn't really apply to our usage. We don't use external storage on the blades, we only use the internal. The document you referred to is setting it up with an PS or SC series storage. We only want to use the MXL for our blades to connect to the network directly. Do you have more documents like this, that has different setups?

Hello thank you for your kind words. That document can actually be used for any kind of setups and configurations, but I will throw a few more.
