Can GE cards and 10GE cards be used together on an S5700 switch

21

There is only one service subcard slot on S5700-SI, S5700-EI, S5710-LI, S5720-C/PC-EI, S5700-HI, and S5720-HI switches. GE cards and 10GE cards cannot be used together.

GE cards and 10GE cards can be used together on S5710-EI and S5710-HI switches.

You can click Hardware Query Tool to query the subcard supported by a specific model.

Whether 10GE ports can auto-negotiate GE networks on OceanStor V3 storage systems
No. First of all, 10GE optical and electrical ports are not compatible with each other. Second, 10GE optical ports do not support GE networks. In addition, 10GE electrical ports' compatibility with GE networks depends on the ports' PHY capabilities. Currently, 10GE electrical ports on OceanStor V3 storage systems do not support GE networks.

Cards supported by S series fixed switches
The following S series fixed switches support cards: S3700-HI, S5710-C-LI, S5700-SI (except the S5700-26X-SI-12S-AC), S5700-EI, S5710-EI, S5720-C-EI, S5720-PC-EI, S5700-HI, S5710-HI, S5720-HI, and S6720-EI series switches. Cards must be installed on corresponding switches based on the mapping between them. If a card is installed on an incompatible switch, the card cannot register. You can use Hardware Query Tool to query the card models supported by specified switches.

Card replacement on S series fixed switches
Before replacing a card on an S series fixed switch, check whether the card is supported by the switch. For the mapping between cards and switches, see section "Cards" in the hardware description of a specified switch. For the hardware description of S5700 switches, see S5700 Hardware Description. For the hardware description of S6700 switches, see S6700 Hardware Description. You can use Hardware Query Tool to query the card models supported by specified switches.

Must 4-port GE cards and 4-port 10GE cards of the S5700EI and S5700SI switches be used with rear extended channel cards
When a 4-port GE card or 4-port10GE card is used without a rear extended channel card, only two ports on the card are available: - 4-port GE subcard: Only the first and second ports can be initialized. The two ports are displayed as GigabitEthernet */1/1 and GigabitEthernet */1/2 after initialization. - 4-port 10GE subcard: Only the first and third ports can be initialized. The ports are displayed as XGigabitEthernet */1/1 and XGigabitEthernet */1/2 after initialization.

Do 10GE front subcards of S5700 switches support GE/10GE auto-sensing
The 10GE front subcards of the S5700EI do not support GE/10G auto-sensing, and 10GE front subcards of the S5700HI and S5700SI support GE/10G auto-sensing.
