Hello
The 6460 has 4 ports for uplinks at 1G by default , if you add the POD 10G licence you can upgrade those ports to 10G.

A 1G SFP wont work at 10G , you would need a 10G sfp for this .

Hope this help

Hi,

you can use your 1GB module if you have configured the port like this:

 

interface ethernet 1/2/1
 speed-duplex 1000-full-master

 

this should work....

Correct, you need to change the interface from autonegoticate to "speed-duplex 1000-full-master".

hello,

If you want to do 10G you need :

  - The 10G licence on your 6450

  - a 10G SFP 

 

Otherwise you will indeed to force the speed to 1G FULL duplex master
