Virtual Connect Flex-10, H3C A5820, DAC cables - 10 Meter Cisco Twinax?

Dave had a Virtual Connect cable question:

 

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

 

HP has tested and support the 3M and 5M Cisco Twinax for VC Flex-10.

(we are linking from Flex-10 to a Nexus5000)

 

So for the 10M Cisco Twinax is it supported or do I say “not supported (i.e. not tested) by HP but likely will work.  If calling HP support we would ask to show that the problem still occurs with a supported cable”.

Not supported….MAY  work but no guarantees.  Customer must verify problems with supported cables before requesting service.

And Alex chimed in:

 

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

 

Actually, starting VC release 3.01 we are supporting ALL of the DAC cables listed in the Flex-10 module QuickSpecs which includes, HP, HP ProCurve, HP C-Series and Cisco DACs, HP B-series and Brocade DACs.

 

We will also allow 3rd party DACs that meet compatibility criteria, they will allow for connectivity but will be marked as “unsupported” by VCM.
