DL360p Gen8 10GbE Direct Attach Cable to ProCurve 5406zl

Hello,

 

I'm planning to buy some DL360p Gen8 servers (646904-421) and a MSA P2000 G3 SAN (AW597B) to run vSphere.  Ideally I'd like to connect them at 10GbE using a SFP+ module (J9538A) in a ProCurve 5406zl switch.  The quickspecs for the NC550SFP (581201-B21) and NC560SFP+ (665249-B21) server adapters show that they support the X240 Direct Attach Cable (JD097C for 3 metres), but the ProCurve and MSA P2000 G3 seem to support the X242 (J9283B for 3 metres).  Does anyone know if the X242 SFP+ Direct Attach Cable is supported in any of the ProLiant 10GbE server adapters?

 

Thanks
