    Hi 

     

    I search to connect Brocade B300 SFP to HP 2530 SFP

     

    Tranceiver and fiber : 

     

    For brocade : 4GB SFP ( ref : 57-1000013-01)

    For HP2530 : 1GB SFP (ref : j4858C)

    Fiber : 5 m multimode 50/125 duplex fiber patch cable LC-LC

     

    In brocade B300, i have configure the port to 1GB but i have this message : 

     

    "port faulted due to SFP validation failure. Please check if the SFP is valid for the configuration"

     

    Why ? 

     

    Thanks you

    --->>>For HP2530 : 1GB SFP (ref : j4858C)

     

    is a Native Ethernet SFP, and such SFP are not support in Brocade FC Switches.

     

    --->>>For brocade : 4GB SFP ( ref : 57-1000013-01)

     

    this SFP is qualified by Brocade and should work, however I believe some Sorts of OLD very SFP with Finisar Signature are not.

    as mentioned in the other thread, you cannot connect FC Swicthes or FC SFP to any Ethernet SFP or Switch , for a simple reasuìon this totally different technology and different Protocols.

     

    there is no way, or any converter or whatever on the Markt available to do that.

     

    To make a long story short, the answer is NO.

    just as courious....

     

    why you want to Connect Ethernet Switch to FC Switch ?

    what is you Goal ?

    do you want parhaps transport data from FC Switch/Storage to Ethernet ?

     

    if yes, you can do that, but only with FCOE ( Fibre Channel over Ethernet ) capable Switches.

    I thinks is my knowledge is involved.

     

    In a room, I have servers and the brocade B300 ( he feed server) 

    In other room, i have switch HP ( he feed a building )

    actualy, this connect from ethernet ( with use other switch) 

     

    the goal, rather a question is whether it is possible to use the brocade to feed the switches of the other room.

    With your answer, I understood that a switch dedicated to the fiber connection of servers can not be used for inter-connection between switch ethernet

     

    Fiber storage switchs are different and not compatible with ordinary switches.
    That's the information I didn't have

     

    To recap, an inter-connection between two rooms (room 1 brocade and room 2 HP)

    Hello,

    It's not possible to connect TCP/IP to FC switches.
    With FCoE you will only achive communication again via FC frames capsulated in to the TCP/IP packet.
