Server Ports on Expansion Modules?

So I've seen in Cisco documentation and on some other places that the Expansion modules on the interconnects can NOT be used as server ports for the chasis?

So on a 6296 FI you can only use the fixed ports for downlink/server ports? So that means you could only get like 12 chasis fully connected with 8 per interconnect?

What do people generally use all of that expansion module space for?  I just noticed in the emulator you could configure an expansion port as a server port, is that a bug?

Server Ports on Expansion Modules?

Hello John,

Server ports are configurable on both the fixed and expansion module. Server ports are not configurable on the 6100 series fabric interconnect expansion module, but are configurable on the 6200 series fabric interconnect expansion module.

Please refer below link for more information:

Server Ports on Expansion Modules?

Expansion modules allow Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnect to be configured as cost-effective 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric interconnects and as I/O consolidation platforms with native Fibre Channel connectivity. The Cisco UCS 6248 UP has one slot for an optional expansion module.The Cisco UCS 6296 has three slots for an optional uplink expansion module. The expansion modules are hot swappable. Only the 16-port UCS E16UP expansion module using the small form factor pluggable plus (SFP+) interface is supported. I hope it will help.
