Hi Mellanox team how do we connect SFP28 port of server (Dual port25Gbps LAN card) to QSFP28 port Mellanox switch P/N: MSN2100-BB2F ?

We are having 25GbE, 2-port, SFP28 Network Adapter (Mellanox CX4) card in Nutanix HCI solution and we are going to connect this card with Mellanox switch P/N: MSN2100-BB2F.

Can you please let us know how do n we connect Mellanox 25Gbps LAN card with Mellanox MSN2100-BB2F switch ? It is a 40Gbps LAN switch and let us know how do we connect QSFP28+ port to SFP28 ? Need your inputs.
