Which of the following is true about the ports in slot 1 on a Cisco Nexus 5548UP?
- Only 16 of them are unified ports.
- The first 16 are FC ports.
- All 32 ports are unified ports
- The first 16 are Ethernet ports.
All 32 ports in slot 1 on a Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch are 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. Typically, a Nexus switch that contains unified ports requires that all Ethernet ports be configured from the first port in the slot forward and that 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.
The last 16 ports in slot 1 of a Cisco Nexus 5596T are FC ports, not the first 16 ports in a Cisco Nexus 5548UP. However, the last 16 ports in a Nexus 5596T can be configured as 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.
