HP VC 8Gb 24-Port FC Module [Cannot detect SFP]

 

Guys,  we have several HP VC 8Gb 24-Port FC Modules [466482-B21]

  and we cannot detect the SFPs.

 

The SFPs we are using are ...

 

AJ718A

HP 8G SW FC SFP+

 

Are we doing something wrong?  We have other Brocades and other models of the VC SAN that work ok.

 

Ask as many questiosn as you need to

 

TIA

I don't know if this is a solution but....update firmware to latest...

 

The Quickspecs for this option does not list this SFP+ (AJ718A) as a supported SFP+.

 

They only list two: Shortwave AJ716B and Longwave AJ717A.

 

A firmware update may solve your problem.

 

Regards,

AJ718A are QLogic optics.

The 8Gb 24 Port FC module is a Brocade under the hood and does not support those optics.

Only the "B-series" (Brocade) optics will work.

AJ716B - HP 8Gb SW B-series FC SFP+
