Hi All,

I am looking to  buy a new r630 but I'm not sure that what I think will work for me will indeed work.

My plan:

  • r630
  • Intel X710 DP 10Gb SR/SFP+ (or any SR optics)
  • CISCO sg500x (already have a few of those)

My concern is the optic compatibility. I know what will work on the sg500x's but I need to make sure I am looking at the right daughter card (and possible additional LAN card) so that I can use the same type of transceivers on either end and live happily thereafter.

Does anybody have a similar setup, i.e. Rx30 series and sg500x connected via 10GB fiber or DAC? Which 10GB LAN cards would work?

Appreciate any help, tips and warnings.
