SFP Question - The Same but different

I need some help understanding why my SFPs show differently on the switch but are the same.

We have 2 x Brocade 300 switches and they have HP AJ716B SFPs installed.

They work fine but i don't understand why some say they are

HP-A Brocade Inter_dist and others say HP-F Brocade Short-dist

They are identical part numbers so is this OK or do i need to change something.

Re: SFP Question - The Same but different



Probably HP sells them as equivalent but those SFPs were purchased and OEMd them from different vendors and that's way they may not be exactly the same.


there is nothing that special that you need to do with them.
