I Wonder if there is possibility to connect two servers directly (without switch or switches) with use of 2x Intel x520-DA2 10Gb Network adapters and Intel Ethernet SFP+ Twinaxial Cable XDACBL3M. Anybody has experience with similar configuration?
You can directly connect (2) X520-DA2. No crossover cable is required and no switch is required. Just make sure to use a quality cable and avoid running the Ethernet cable in parrellel with interference devices, such as a power cord.
thank you for your answer. Can i use Intel Ethernet SFP+ Twinaxial Cable XDACBL3M for such connection, somebody told me that this kind of cables are desinged for connection with switch and not with secound host. If not which cable I should use?
