I have a specific question about using a this 2m passive SFP+ cable to connect the 10Gb uplink port on a switch to a NIC in a server.
Switch: Netgear GS752TXS
Server NIC: HP NC522SFP
I'm fairly confident that the switch and server NIC are fine, but can I use that cable to connect a 10Gb uplink port to an SFP+ NIC and achieve 10Gbps results? I've read this question and this question, but my $5000 project depends on this working and I would like an expert's advice before I spend the $$.Those three things are all I need, correct? No transcievers, since I am straight sfp to sfp?
Thanks in advance!
