Hello all, it has been a while since I have dealt with Cisco so please bare with me. I am looking at getting two 2960S 24 port switches, and I am wondering it talks about being able to have 2 x 10 GB fiber uplink ports. Now can I use those two fiber ports to connect to a 10 GB enabled server? if so what do I loose out of the 24 regular ethernet ports?
Traditionally the 10Gig fiber ports are used to uplink one switch to another or two others switches, but if you are not using them for uplinks then you can use them to connect to servers as long as the servers support 10Gig interfaces. Most servers come with LC connectors so you need a fiber patch cord with one site LC and the other site SC but check the connectors first. Also by using the 10Gig interface you do not loose aany of the copper ports
