Uplink from VC Flex-10 to A5800 using DAC.

Hi,

Does anybody knows is DAC HP X240 SFP+ SFP+ 3 m Direct Attach Cable (JD097B) supported with VC Flex-10 or does A5800 switch support DAC from flex-10 (487655-B21) HP BLc SFP+ 3m 10GbE Copper Cable. If I can not found a matching cable I need to go with fiber and that takes my bill astronomically high (4 x DAC = 800$, 8 x FC transceivers + FC cables = 8000$) it is 10 times more expensive. I got a info that VC team is preparing a firmware v3.3 for virtualconnect but I do not have info is DAC list extended like last time with v3.01.

We are in process of getting a VC Flex-10 and 2 x A5800 but this issue with DAC I'm skeptic because it takes price of HP switches in rank with Cisco switches and I might just go with them.

The A series DAC is not on the list, i found a site where it states that all DAC will work but there will not be supported by HP. It is interested that HP do not support there own DAC (ex. 3Com).

I guess the list I linked to above is too old to have the part number you are looking for, they probably changed the PNs in the meantime...

Hi,

I just get info from HP networking group that A series DAC will be included in new firmware for VC flexfabric and flex-10 that is planed for release in 2-4 weeks if all goes as planed. So we will just hold on and see what will happen.
