Virtual Connect module stacking links - cables to be used

Chad had a multi-enclosure stacking link cable question:




Is there an actual list of cables that are supported for use with stacking links? I’ve used FC cables with supported SFPs as stacking links but wasn’t 100% sure of supportability. In the Virtual Connect Install and Startup Guide, it states under the stacking cable layout:


For information on supported cable and transceiver options, see the Virtual Connect module

QuickSpecs on the Installing tab of the HP BladeSystem Technical Resources website



This seems to imply that any supported cable/transceiver could be used as a stacking cable.




Reply from Chris:




ANY cable can be a stacking link.  We do not have a preference or proprietary cable.
