Network Card compatibility


Hi Gurus,


I have server rp8420 running hpux 11.11. i need to upgrade one lan card from 1Gig to 10Gig. I come to know that the below 10Gig lan card supports this model with 11.11 OS.



AB287A PCI-X 133 MHz 10GbE SR fiber (PA-RISC)


1) Please tell, will it support rp8420.

2) if yes, does this lan card support RJ45 connector, because i think existing lancard would be having RJ45 connection only.

Re: Network Card compatibility

According to this document -- -- the AB287A is supported on the rp8420.


The AB287A requires a fiber connection NOT an RJ45.  I could not find any 10Gb cards in that document that have an RJ45 interface AND that are supported on the rp8420.
