nexus 5010 connecting to catalyst 3750

unreal400 asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I am trying to get my Nexus 5010 switches to communicate with my stacked 3750 switches but cannot get anything to route between the two.      There are connected through fiber SFP's  ports 51 and 52 on the 3750 and  ports 1/7 1/8 on the Nexus.  Links show active and connected.   All ports are in trunk mode with all vlans allowed.

Trunks are set up links are active  but I get no communication.    Is there something specific I need to set up on my Nexus 5010 to have it be able to communicate.   Any ideas of what I need to do.
