One Answer:


I think this is something either someone having the same equipment can answer, or the vendor support. So you might just ask Cisco how this works; I have the SG200-8 which does not have the mini GBIC ports, and it mirrors everything just fine. But since it is not the same switch I don't know how yours works. Better ask Cisco if the device supports mirroring the miniGBIC ports (which I expect it would).
