Connecting two Nexus switches with link

Hi,

I would like to connect two nexus switches with a link. Like one c5020 and one c5548p. How do i need to configure the ports at both the switches which will be joined with a fiber cable.

For MDS switches such links becomes E-port and fabric is merged. Not sure what happenes at the Nexus swictches. Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Do you have fc modules in each nexus? If so, they act much like the MDS 9148. All ports should be default auto speed and auto switchport mode. Insert fc-sfp's and a regular multimode fc cable between them. Default mode is fc switch.

If that doesn't work, configure the mode on each port as E.

Once done, the fc switch portion of each nexus will merge.

Thats great. Sure that is possible and workable solution.

I would be interested to know if two nexus can be joined using 10G Network port.

Thanks,
