QSFP uplinkport in UCS MINI

Hi,

Could I use the QSFP port in UCS MINI FI 6324 as uplink port to connect to either QSFP port in Nexus switch or 4 x 10 Gbps SFP+ in Nexus switch?

Hi Amr

The QSFP port can only be used to connect to a secondary chassis, rack servers, or storage.

Hi Walter

Cisco Data sheet and specs sheet mentioned that port support Ethernet and FCoE, an thw uplink port is Ethernet 

So, why this port could not work as uplink port ?

also, this port support FCoE storage only so we could not connect FC storage directly 

could we connect this port to MDS

The 4 SFP+ ports are universal and support classical FC.

The specs clearly says 

The QSFP port can only be used to connect to a secondary chassis, rack servers, or storage. 

Although this ports are Ethernet, they are restricted to the above configuration.
