There's no need to configure anything other than what would be needed for a copper port. If the port is a combo port (and as far as I remember you only have combo SFP ports in the -48t), you could specify you want the SFP to take precedence over the copper port, but that's the default anayway:

"To change the uplink failover assignment, use the following command:

configure ports port_list preferred-medium [copper | fiber] {force}

The default preferred-medium is fiber. If using the force option, it disables automatic failover. If you
force the preferred-medium to fiber and the fiber link goes away, the copper link is not used, even if
available."
