I am wrapping up the parts for my 10G expansion to my network. Just down to cables/adapters for SFP ports.
The one in question I have is, can I connect two switches via SFP and SFP+ via DAC cable?
I have one of the new Unifi Aggregation 8 port 10G switches. I will be connecting it to an SFP port on my older 24 port POE Unifi switch. Will the connection automatically connect at 1G or will I need to manually setup the connection? Or, will I need to use fiber/RJ45 adapters instead of DAC to drop the 10G switch to 1G on that connection? All other connections off the 10G switch will be to other 10G devices, so no issues there. Just that one connection is a concern. I have seen with some switches you need to manual drop the rate to 1G on SFP+ ports and want to make sure I am getting all the parts I need.
