we want to uplink several X460-G2 switches via 10 meter Copper DAC Cable to a S4.

But it seems not working. Does anybody know if the X460-G2 10Gb optic ports have the needed PHY unit to get 10m Cables runnig ??

Behaviour:
S4 port Link is Up / X460-G2 port stay down - but DAC cable will be recognize correctly.

i found an answer in the X460-G2 Datasheet -  it is not possibel!

Section: Transceiver Support Matrix

It will only work within a the optional VIM Module!

Yes. Use either max 3m DAC for PHYLESS or go FO SFP+ SR modules.
VIM-2x will definitely support 5m and 10m DAC cable.
