Which of the following is true about the first 32 ports on a Cisco Nexus 5596T?
- They are Ethernet ports.
- They are management ports.
- They are FC ports.
- They are unified ports.
The first 32 ports in the Cisco Nexus 5596T are all 10-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) Ethernet ports; they cannot be configured as unified ports. A unified port is a physical port on a Cisco switch that can be configured as either an Ethernet port or a Fibre Channel (FC) port.
The last 16 ports in slot 1 of a Cisco Nexus 5596T are FC ports, not the first 32 ports. However, the last 16 ports in a Nexus 5596T can be configured as unified ports.
The Cisco Nexus 5596T has one Ethernet management port, not 32. In addition, the Cisco Nexus 5596T supports one console management port.
All 32 ports in slot 1 on a Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch are unified ports, not the first 32 ports on a Cisco Nexus 5596T. Typically, a Nexus switch that contains unified ports requires that all Ethernet ports be configured from the first port in the slot forward and all FC ports be configured from the last port in the slot backward. In other words, a slot that contains 32 unified ports, two acting as Ethernet and two acting as FC, will typically use ports 1 and 2 for Ethernet links and ports 32 and 31 for FC links.
