Virtual Connect FlexFabric module, Using Port X1 and X2 for interconnec in place of X7 and X8

Joe had Virtual Connect FlexFabric module question:

 

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

 

Customer only has 1 GB backbone.  He needs X7 and X8 along with X5 and X6 for 1 GB communication.  With X1-X4 being 10 GB only, we are strapped for uplink ports.  Can we safely use X1 and X2 with cables from Bay 1 to Bay 2.  Is it supported.

 

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

 

Steve answered:

 

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

 

Yes, that will work.  Just order a 1m DAC cable and run it externally.
