Nexus Newbie already stuck

Nexus Newbie already stuck

My company just got a nexus 5548. I'm playing with it and trying to become familiar with this new O.S. One of my first issues is connecting this to another switch. I have a 3850 and I have them connected via 10gig transceivers. If I put the ports on both switched in access mode, I can ping each other. If I switch them over to trunk mode, I can ping each other. Just to be clear, when I ping across, the management ports are not connected. What am I doing wrong and I'm definitely going to look into ordering some books on Nexus O.S.
