Lab 2 nodes VSAN setup using 2x10Gbps cross connect, without 10Gbps switch

I'm trying to setup a 2Nodes VSAN lab using 2x DL360 G10. There are 2x1Gbps and 2x10Gbps ports, I connected both servers using the 2x10Gbps directly connect, as I don't have 10Gbps switch. But I failed to complete the installation via the wizard and from the failure, it look like the servers can't communicate via the cross cables.

I think of getting the cheapest 10Gbps RJ45 switch, TP-LINK TL-SX105 5-port 10Gbps. or MikroTik, or should I try changing the setting using cross cables.

Any suggestion? Sorry, I'm don't have good experience with VSAN, and can't focus much time on this.
