Blade chassis connection to Cisco swtich

Hi. I am trying to connect the blade ethernet passthrough modules to a Cisco 2600 series switch but I can only get link from the two uplink ports on the switch. I'm sure I am missing some basic config setting here. Advice is much appreciated.

Hi, it's a C class blade system. I think the frustration is clouding my vision... where do I set the performance for the passthru module? Thanks very much for your assistance. James

Hi

I am sorry ....taht word performance was their by mistake


Pass Thru module only supports - Full duplex 1Gb Ethernet only
there is No auto-negotiation.

So in case you connect it to a switch with ports at 10/100 Mbps - It would not connect
