Can we connect our server with a SFP+ Nic with this port or is the port only for uplink.

    @JackAninco don't quote me on that, but even another switch is a "nic" for a switch port.
    Therefore, should work, IMVHO. You can still checkup the switch manual for more detailed info.

    @JackAninco,
    It should not have any problem, any issue you have?

    We are looking to make the connection. I see i can switch the Media type of the port to DAC 10G.
    So i suppose i can connect my server. Do we need an Active or a passive dac cable.
    I cannot find any info about this in the manual of the switch.

    @JackAninco,
    If the cable is longer than 3m then we recommend using active DAC or Active optical cable if it is short than 1m then use passive DAC.
