Hello Christopher,

all ports are enabled as L2 switchports in vlan 1

see

section Default Settings After Initial Switch Configuration

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750e_3560e/software/release/12.2_46_se/configuration/guide/swintro.html#wp1160584

you cannot plug a 1GE module like GLC-LH-SM into a 10GE X2 they are different.

you need to insert the twingig that acts as a converter

10-Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces

The Catalyst 3750-E and 3560-E switches have two 10-Gigabit Ethernet module slots. For uplink connections to other switches and routers, use the Cisco TwinGig Converter Modules.

A 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface operates only in full-duplex mode. The interface can be configured as a switched or routed port.

For more information about the Cisco TwinGig Converter Module, see the switch hardware installation guide and your transceiver module documentation.
