HP SN6000b Across DWDM

    Posted 05-22-2017 02:11 AM

    Hi,

     

    I was wondering if I could get some advice on how to connect two HP SN6000b switches across a DWDM link. How should the ports be configured, A end is multimode fibre B end is Single Mode fibre. Do I require aditional licenses from the standard? What SFPs should be used at each end? I am currently using the config below but not having much luck.

    We have had the provider of the link to check the line and they say all is health on their end. If that is the case should I not at least see some more numbers in the portshow results?

     

    Any help on this would be greatfully received.

     

    Thanks

    @CMurphy

     

    you need at both end same SFP

    It turns out the supplier was using the incorrect SFP and this has now been resolved.
