Can I use Direct Attach Cables with P4000 G2 10G BASE-SFP+ Upgrade Kit?

Can I use Direct Attach Cables with P4000 G2 10G BASE-SFP+ Upgrade Kit?

reference the NC550SFP QuickSpecs at: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13555_div/13555_div.html

Direct Attach Cables are supported by the HP P4000 G2 10G BASE-SFP+ Upgrade Kit.


However, I am not sure if the DAC is supported at the switch side.

with reference to the HP A5820 Switch Series QuickSpecs, A5820 does support DAC, but the part number is difference from the NC550SFP's:

NC550SFP:
HP 0.5m SFP+ 10GbE Copper Cable
487649-B21
HP 1m SFP+ 10GbE Copper Cable
487652-B21
HP 3m SFP+ 10GbE Copper Cable
487655-B21
HP 5m SFP+ 10GbE Copper Cable
537963-B21
HP 7m SFP+ 10GbE Copper Cable
487658-B21

A5820:
HP X240 SFP+ SFP+ 0.65 m Direct Attach Cable
JD095B
HP X240 SFP+ SFP+ 1.2 m Direct Attach Cable
JD096B
HP X240 SFP+ SFP+ 3 m Direct Attach Cable
JD097B
HP X240 SFP+ SFP+ 5m Direct Attach Cable
JG081B

Is there any offical statment or successfull case in this?

Thanks!
