We are in the process of deploying new NX-8235-G7 nodes that are connected to a pair of Cisco Nexus switch. Everything seems to be working well, with the exception of the switch occasionally receiving RX Pause frames from the servers. While this may not necessarily be a problem, I am doing my due dilligence.
The switch ports the nodes are connected to are configured as follows:
- Connected as active/standby NICs
- Connected via 1 meter 10GE DAC cables
- 802.1Q trunk
- Speed/duplex auto-negotiation
- Flow control auto-negotiation
The nodes themselves are configured with the default network configuration that comes from the factory with the exception of anything that is necessary to support the use of ESXi and our network environment.
Any suggestions or validations of how the switch ports should be configured?
