Connect two UCS together

Please tell me how to properly configure the ports to connect the Cisco UCS 6248UP and the Cisco UCS-FI-M-6324 [UCS Mini] (so that there is communication both via Ethernet and FC). It is planned to use all 4 ports on 6324!
If this connection option is not supported, is there somewhere documented evidence in the documentation?

 

grateful for any information

Re: Connect two UCS together

The UCSM/UCSM-mini are designed to be connected to northbound switches and not other 'end host' mode systems like another UCSM/UCSM-mini.

While you could put the units in 'switching' mode, you then have to contend with spanning tree blocking, and other less than optimal settings for which the ucsm end host modes were designed to overcome.

Re: Connect two UCS together

if we configure UCS Mini as 'end host' mode (4 uplink ports in the portchannel), and UCS 6248 in switching mode - will this configuration work?
