VC Flex-10 Question on cable types.

Kamlesh had a VC cable interface question:

 

***************

 

We are installing a X9730 (Ibrix) which has a C7000 and on the VC Flex-10 the X1 Port is set to  CX4 port we want to change this to X1 on the SFP+. Question is how do we change it?? I have press the arrow as shown with the red circle in the picture below without any joy.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

The X1 port will move to the SFP during the install process, it just defaults to the CX4 when unconfigured.

And from Dan:

Just Plug in the SFP+ transceiver in the X1 slot and the CX4 will be superseded automatically.

 

X7 and X8 are the same.  Put a Transceiver in one of those slots and the corresponding internal Cross Connect through the midplane will be automatically disabled.

 

**************
