We have two 6120s connected to two UCS 5108s in two separate rooms in our building. We have just completed a 2nd formal server room and will be moving one of the 6120/5108 pairs into that room. Currently, the 6120's are cross connected (1Gig copper) to each other and all of the 10Gig connections are appropriately connected.
The issue is that the two server rooms are more than 100m apart so there is no copper connections between the rooms. We have switches in each room connected via 10Gig fiber.
Our VAR who installed originally this sent an e-mail that these 1Gig copper cross connects must not pass through a switch. He has left to get married and is gone for a few weeks.
We are not moving this until November, but I'm not willing to wait a couple of weeks until the engineer returns to get the answer to this question. I have looked on CCO and other than identifying the 1Gig ports as "cross-connect" or "cluster", I can't find anything out.
I would think that they would work through a switch, perhaps in their own non-routed VLAN or something.
Will this work? Is there a design guide on CCO that shows it?
