Brocade M6505 is on NO_Sigdet state

    I cannot map server to any port in both AG mode and native mode because port status show No_SigDet.

    How can I solve it. I already install server module and driver of fabric card on OS. Port of server still show status No_SigDet. It's not Online status.

    show as you use cu = Copper, SFP+ Direct Attached Cable.

    I've a list here, and such cable are NOT Qualified for 65xx.

    otherwise post please the exact SFP part Number -  "sfpshow" command give details about inserted SFP I'll check if is supported or no.

    Yes. This is Blade Switch for Dell M1000e Blade Enclosure with QME2622. Is this hardware compatible problem?

    ---> Is this hardware compatible problem?

    No. All I/O Blade have internally Copper Port, so please ignore my preview Post, I refer here to Standalone 65xx Switches.

    Usually this error indicated the Port is disconnected or unplugged, or some other reason like FW compatibility problem, and much more.

    Try to disable the Switch Port and then enable again.
