Do we ‘offically’ support this for uplinks and stacking links VC Flex-10 to Nexus 7k.    Pricing/available part is  the motivation

Following HPN DAC cables are now supported on  VC Flex-10, Flex-10/10D and FlexFabric. The QuickSpecs will be updated to reflect this support. Minimum VC firmware version is VC 3.30.

Re: Qualified DAC cables from HP Networking question

All well and good for connections between VC Flex-10 modules, but beware that there is no stated support by Cisco for these on N7K switches.  Beware also that the cable types supported on N7K is not consistent across all modules - some support both active and passive cables while some support only active or only passive cables.

 

Cisco publish their own cable support matrix at
