Nexus fabric extender question

Hello,

is it generally possible to connect another switch, such as a 3750 to a port of a fabric extenders (C2232PP-10GE)?

Many thanks.

Hi,

The 2k interfaces are for host/server connectivity. 

so long as that switch is treated as host, it should work

Host Interfaces

Host interfaces are for host or server connectivity only; host  interfaces cannot connect to another network. These interfaces are  always enabled as edge ports; as they come up, these ports immediately  transition to the forwarding state. Host interfaces are always enabled  with BPDU Guard. If a BPDU is received, the port is immediately placed  in an error-disabled state which keeps the link down.

You can enable host interfaces to accept Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP)  packets. This protocol only works when it is enabled for both ends of a  link.
