Nexus 5010 has problem connecting to external switch

We have a 5010 switch and attempted to connect to an external 1000Base-T switch using the Ethenet Connector Ports (labeled L1 and L2), however, it won't connect out. I think there's something I'm missing but according to the user guide, L1/L2 port is supposed to connect to external router, hub, or switch. So what is the problem? Thanks.

Where did you find the information about port L1 and L2 ?

Colin,

The documention you are citing is general hardware installation and not great in terms  of configuration. Think of it as a physical guide to racking, plugging cables in, where to mount brackets and so on.

Use this section in the config guide to configure mgmt0:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/configuration/guide/cli_rel_4_0_1a/initconfig.html#wp1110654

L1 and L2 are not active interfaces at this time.  In the future, they might be used for vPC (virtual port-channel) communication.

Regards,

John Gill
