P2000 MSA G3 10GBE iSCSI

Hi, can I use a normal 10GBE switch (like ProCurve 6120XG) with the iSCSI ports of these disk array?

Should work. Looks like you just need the SFP+ and cables.

See the quickspecs:


"Two 10GbE ports per G3 10GbE iSCSI controller. Ports are ready for the choice of SFP (none included)
Supports the ProCurve and ISS versions of the following 10GbE parts for use in the controllers:

HP 10Gb Cables

HP SFP+ 10GbE Copper Cable
HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+-SFP+ Direct Attach Cable

HP SFP+ Transceivers

HP BladeSystem 10Gb SR SFP+ and HP BladeSystem 10Gb LRM SFP+
HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+ SR Transceiver and HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+ LRM Transceiver
No SFP+ LR Transceiver support"
