We are looking at deploying SX1012 for our top of racks. All the devices in the rack are 40GB QSFP+ except one which is 1GB RJ45 (PDU monitor)
Can one of the management ports on an SX1012 switch be used as a standard 1GB data port (Layer 2) ? Or is it reserved only for management?
The models we are looking at have 2 management ports.
mgmt0 and mgmt1 can't forwards data traffic.
for 1gbe-T you can use a QSFP-TO-SFP adapter with an SFP+T Transceiver
