Ethernet up-link connection to an SFP up-link (two switches)

Hello all,

I'm a bit new to switches with Ethernet uplinks 10/100/1000 vs. SFP uplinks (specifically copper/rj45 SFP).

I need to connect two switches together so i can extend my second switch to another cage, i need to use the uplinks to do this but i have two different switches and i'm not sure if this will work.

 

Can I connect Sw A (C2960-48TT-L) with the Ethernet up-links 10/100/1000 to Sw B (2960S-48TS-L) with SFP copper (rj45) uplinks together?  I believe as long as both sides are set at 1000, I think it should be fine, correct?

I understand the 2960 is 48 port 10/100 vs the 2960s 48 port 10/100/1000 but i need gigabit on the extended cage for now, later I'll replaced the primary.  

Please advise.

you can extend the Copper as long as they do not go beyond Copper limitation.
