HP B-series 8/24c BladeSystem SAN Switch

Hi,

We are in the process of installing the new SAN Switch- [C2-1001], 11, CHASSIS, ERROR, SW5480, Port 20 port faulted due to SFP validation failure. Please check if the SFP is valid for the configuration.

Can somebody throw light to this issue

Regards,
Pram

You should check the SFP - wrong part or broken?

Hope this helps!

This is a brand new switch, and the SFPs have came factory integrated,still is there a chance that SFPs can be faulty!!
I have tried resetting the switch to factory defaults also.

Try to reseat the SFP or swap it to another slot. If still faulty, you need an replacement.

Hope this helps!

Port 20 is one of the 8 external ports on a Brocade 8/24 c-class interconnect switch. So it does use a removable sfp.

So as already advised, physically reseat the sfp. If you still have the error contact the HP SAN Switch team and have the Brocade SupportShow output available.

Thanks!

Thanks for your response,

We have isolated this issue out, it's a SFP compatibility issue with 8GB SAN Switch, the 4GB SFPs are the ones which are giving the port validation errors, but if i install the 8GB SFPs there is no issue.
