10GbE Pass-Thru Module connections to Cisco 2232 Fabric Extenders using SFP+ transceivers

Yasemin had a HP Pass-Thru Module question:

 

************************

 

Did anyone have to implement 10GbE Pass-Thru Modules to Cisco 2232 Fabric Extenders ? Which SFP+ did you use?

I see in the Cisco2232 tech specs they accept SR and LR optical transceivers. Am trying to decipher our quick specs and need to confirm whether we support SR or LR (or both).

 

(not doing DACs).

HP P/N 455883-B21 is SR optics. If you search for this P/N you will see it. Pass-Thru Module supports only SR and LRM 10G optical transceivers.

On the other hand don't use SR-like FETs (Cisco's Fabric Extender Transceivers made for extender to Nexus 5k/7k fabric interconnection) to connect the enclosure to Cisco 2232 because FET is only supported by Cisco Nexus family itself.

Any additional help or suggestions for Yasemin?
