Hi,

In a new implementation we need to use twinax cable Cisco 10GBASE-CU SFP+ 7 meter, active (SFP-H10GB-ACU7M) connected between switches Cisco Nexus 5548UP and Nutanix NX-8235-G5 nodes.

Can we use these cables or may have some issues?.

Regards.
Luis

As far as I know, Nutanix has no limitations for cable types.
If the cables are supported by the switch vendor, it should be okay.

lbenitez Following up here as this isn't marked as solved - is this still outstanding? I'll second badonders comments that we do not have cable type restrictions on our side, and I've personally used these TwinAx cables you mentioned with success.

Thanks @badonders and Jon for your comments.
