Virtual Connect SFP

Hi all

I need to connect the module VC "Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module" to a network switch and a SAN switch.

Network: 1Gb switch. I think that I need "453154-B21 HP BLc Virtual Connect 1Gb RJ-45 Small Form Factor Pluggable Option Kit". Correct ?

SAN: The switch is a 4Gb. It's possible to use 8Gb SFP on the VC side ?
In the QuickSpec I see 2 option:

AJ716A HP 8Gb Shortwave B-series Fibre Channel 1 Pack SFP+ Transceiver
AJ718A HP StorageWorks 8Gb Short Wave Fibre Channel SFP+ 1 Pack

Which one is appropriate for the "Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module"

Many thanks
Max

Correct. You can also use 453151-B21 1Gb SX SFP for fibre optics 1Gb connection.

>> SAN: The switch is a 4Gb. It's possible to use 8Gb SFP on the VC side ?

Yes, you can use 8Gb SFP. It will work with 8Gb, 4Gb and 2Gb connections. Both AJ716A and AJ718A work with FlexFabric module. AJ718A is cheaper.

Re: Virtual Connect SFP

Hi,

I am in the process of installing a C Class G3 Chassis.

when I plug a A718A module into the VC X1 port , it resports as incompatible.

the VC is up to 4.20 firmware as is the OA.

Any ideas??
