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"
note : sorry fo my english
--->>>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.
Thanks you for you reply.
I understand. You are reply for my issue.
Thanks you for you help
thanks for share
I search to connect Brocade B300 to HP 1920 or 2530. But i don't know what equipment i need and if is possible.
Have you an idea ?
Old subject :
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.
Thanks you for you reply. i understands
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)
