Looking at the Network connectivity on this thing, what should I have connected to the switch I have for full utilization of this server.
Depends if the ethernet ports are 10Gbit. If not, the what looks to be SFP fiber ports on the right hand PCI slot are probably 10Gbit, so you'd want to use that.
Not sure what the dark port on the left is, probably some sort of SAN connector for attaching the server to storage. Then again there are no screw holes to secure the connector which you'd expect for storage connection on a server...
