Cisco MDS9124 Fiber Switch

Hi, I have 2 Cisco MDS9124 Fiber switches. I recently purchased 2 more. I am down to 1 port left on the switch. Is there any way to uplink these switches together?

1. if you want to use the same username admin, telnet to each switch and issue the command:

sw# config t

sw(config)# snmp-server user admin auth md5 <password of user admin>

from FM GUI, click on the icon "rediscover" under File

 
2. If you want to create a generic user for FM

sw# config t

sw(config)# snmp-server user fcadmin auth md5 <password of user fcadmin>

from login to FM --> Fabric TAB ---> select fabric --> remove

Then Fabric TAB ---> click Discover ---> enter IP address of one of the switch ---> user fmadmin/password ---> discover

Let's say you have MDS1 and MDS2 and the new MDS3 and MDS4.

If MDS1 has 1 port available, do the following.

Configure trunk between MDS1 - MDS3 and MDS3 - MDS4.

Thank you for that. I was able to get them uplinked my setting the mode on the port to E. Now just another stupidd question. When I log into the Fabric Manager SA, I see both switches, but the other says "Invalid Auth PAssword or wrong digest". How can I change that?
