5412Rzl2 Transceiver Problem

Hi!

We have a 5412Rzl2 Switch with a J9990 Module. We bought a 10 Gbit Copper Transceiver 813874-B21 to connect a Qnap NAS with 10 Gbit, but the switch says, that the Transceiver type is not supported in this port. 

My Question: Is it the wrong Transceiver, or is it damaged ? 

 

Thanks.

It's an unsupported Transceiver.

Depending on which ArubaOS-Switch version your Aruba 5400R zl2 is running on (pre/post KB.16.03)...you could try to force unsupported transcerivers to be recognized (see here).

On the other hand it would be correct to use a supported Transceivers...so please check ArubaOS-Switch and ArubaOS-CXTransceiver Guide (6th Edition, January 2019).

I think that SKU 813874-B21 is used on HPE ProLiant Servers (see here).

I also noticed such a problem, I hope it has already been fixed

Technically speaking there is nothing to fix because there isn't a problem = it's (working as it works) by design (unsupported transceivers are...unsupported...and, eventually, they are allowed to be tried without any warranty of functioning correctly once used into an Aruba switch).
