Trunking Cisco Nexus 3048 with a Force10 S4810

Hi there,

While I am an experienced systems guy, I am relatively new to network infrstructure. I have been assigned the task of trunking VLAN between a Nexus 3048 and a Force10 S4810. This would seem easy enough but I am really having a bear of a time getting it to work. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have devices configured on VLAN 602 on both sides but they just are not talking.

Trunking Cisco Nexus 3048 with a Force10 S4810

ok... turns out I had the cable plugged into the wrong port on the S4810. FYI... Cisco Nexus is numbered top to bottom. Force10 S4810 is numbered bottom to top.
