QSFP Link between Nexus and DELL MXL

Hi All
we have two N56128 and DELL BladeSwitche MXL 10/40

I tried to connect the MXL Switch to the Nexus by VPC (2 x 40GBit) via Cisco QSFP-H40G-CU5M cable.

 

N5K----N5K
  \           /
   \        /
     \    /
      \ /
    MXL

 

Unfortunately I don't get any active links. The interfaces on both sides remain in status down.
Is there a special setting on the Nexus to use the QSFP-H40G-CU5M?

The cables on both switches are detected
