Which 24 ports are enabled on the Nexus 3524-X Switch

Hi there,

 

the Cisco switches nexus-3524-x and -3548-x platforms are built on the identical hardware. Both series have physical 48 ports.

 

My question is: On a Nexus 3524-x which 24 out of the 48 ports can I use by default?

Is it port 1 - 24? Or the first random 24 ports used?

 

Does anyone explicitly know?

 

thanks,

Thomas

Seems like all of them function so you can pick which 24 you want.  The licensing probably restricts the back plane, not the necessarily the physical ports.  This just an educated guess based on the post I found below (see last section under licensing):

Based on this article on cisco.com (Cisco Nexus 3548-X, 3524-X, 3548-XL, and 3524-XL Switches Data Sheet), it states that "The Cisco Nexus 3548 and 3524 Switches (Figure 1) are based on identical hardware, differentiated only by their software licenses, which allow the Cisco Nexus 3524 to operate 24 ports, and enable the use of all 48 ports on the Cisco Nexus 3548."
