I have looked around online on Cisco's site and scanned over the Nexus 5000 document and I cant seem to find the answers Im looking for. The document I am referring to can be found at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/configuration/guide/cli_rel_4_0_1a/CLIConfigurationGuide.html
I have two questions:
1) Are there any guides to connecting the 5000's to 6509's which would be serving as the core? If not can someone point me in the right direction.
2) I have configured the management port on the 5000. In order to access the CLI of the switch without a console cable do I need to have the management port connected to my infrastructure or can I ssh/telnet to the switch by just having it uplinked via Fiber back to the 6509's?
Thank you kindly
