I am working on a UCS design for a customer, I need to understand the physical connectivity of uplinks from 6120XP. Customer has 6509 in their environment with 48 x 1G eth modules. Unfortunately I cannot uplink 6120 using ethnet port to the LAN environment, Any suggestion or solution for followings:
- Can I connect/uplink 10G port from 6120XP to 1G port port on LAN switch probably 6509 or 2960.?
- Incase if Optical port is not available on 6509, can I use fabrci converter to convert the uplink from optical to eth, so that I could connect 6120XP with 6509?
Yes you can connect the fabric Interconnect (FI) to 1G port of an uplink switch. The first 8 fixed ports can be configured to operate in 1 Gigabit Ethernet mode with the transceiver options specified for use with SFP-compatible ports using 1000BASE-T SFP GLC-T, you must specify the 1G rate of the port from the UCS manager.

VMware Trunk Port Group is supported from ACI version 2.1

ASA device package must be uploaded to APIC
ASAv version must be compatible with ACI and device package version
