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

(http://www.hp.com/go/bladesystem/documentation).

 

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

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