    I ordered some SFP-H10GB-CU3M compatible (supposedly) DACs from fs.com, and although they're nice and thin, and work with my Mellanox Connectx-3 cards in my NAS', they are not compatible with my P81E 10GbE cards in my UCS servers. Can anyone recommend a good DAC in 3-5m distances to connect my servers to my 10GbE switch?

    Thanks. That was actually my question. I worked with their support, and ended up getting some Mellanox Connectx-3 cards and returned my P81E's. I wasn't aware that the P81Es are really designed to be used with a Fabric Interconnect and cannot be used as a NIC.
