Trouble configuring 10G port on Cisco switch

I'm having trouble configuring 10G port on Cisco C3750X switch.  There is a C3KX-NM-10G network module installed which gives 2 10g ports and 2 1g ports.  I believe ports 2 and 4 can be used for 10g.  Port 2 currently is using 10g to connect to another wiring closet and there is nothing in port 4.  I am looking to connect my EMC backup appliance using the 10g port.  I am a novice when it comes to networking, especially stuff like this.  Interface TenGigabitEthernet1/1/2 is port 4 on the 10g module I would like to use.  Other than adding the vlan is there anything else i need to do?  I was hoping it would act as a regular port but only 10g.  
Forgive me if this sounds stupid.  I have researched this but I have not found anything that explains it well.

Current log :

What is the problem? Is it not connecting?
Ensure the device at the other end supports as well. Set everything to auto.

Thanks Predrag Jovic for clarifying that.  That is news I did not want to hear but I will make it work.

Not sure what in there was the actual answer, but okay.

This is my situation:
Slot 2 with one 10-Gigabit SFP+ module and Slots 3 and 4 with 1-Gigabit SFP modules "
Because currently slot 2 is 10G and 3 is 1G, the only option I have is 1G for slot 4. It really was not a configuration issue but a hardware limitation.
