Cabling from HP10Gb Pass-thru module to Cisco 2232

John had a cabling issue:




Hi Folks:


I am planning on using 3m 487655-B21 DAC cables to connect 10Gb Pass-Thru modules to Cisco Nexus 2000's (2232's).   Can anyone comment as to whether or not these cables will work.  I noticed in the FlexFabric QuickSpec there are other 3m DAC cables, particularly the AP819A.




Steve replied:




The 10Gb Pass Thru will accept any DACs from any manufacturer. Tested cables are HP/ProCurve, BNT, Cisco.  Others will work but we do not offer any guarantee and customers must evaluate the risk.

The Cisco switch should allow the B-21 cables but the Cisco switch needs to be configured to accept non Cisco cables and will complain about it in the CLI.
