I'm somewhat of a newby specifying Cisco devices and I've made an error.
I have 2 Catalyst 2960S switches (C2960S-24PS-L).
Based on this snippet of web copy from the Cisco website:
What's new for the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches with LAN Base Software:
• 10 and 1 Gigabit Ethernet uplink flexibility with Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+), providing business continuity and fast transition to 10 Gigabit Ethernet
I bought a cable assembly "SFP-H10GB-CU3M" (3 meter copper twinax cable with 10GB SFPs on each end). Unfortunately, it appears after more careful reasearch that my specific model 2960S's are not directly compatible.
So, my question is, can I force these 10GB SFPs down to 1GB and get them to work with my switches or do I need to return and repurchase?
