Note -  If you are connecting this Converged Network Adapter to a Cisco FCoE switch, do not use the cables listed in this section. Instead, use OM-3 twin-ax cables that are supported by Cisco. Check with Cisco for the recommended twin-ax cables to use with the specific Cisco switch that you are using. If any issues occur due to the use of Cisco cables, contact Cisco support for resolution.
  1. Insert one end of the copper cable, or cables, into an empty SFP+ cage on the adapter.

    Confirm that the cable is fully inserted and engaged.
