Re: Port Error on 5300

It looks like a wrong SFP.

Brocade allows only Brocade certified SFPs.

If you have an HP branded switch you need HP branded SFPs.

Check with sfpshow commad the Vendor and model and compare it with a working SFP.

If the SFP vendor is OK check you speed settings.

I hope this helps,
