Hello,

Anyone here using HPE Synergy 12000 with VC SE 40Gb F8 module hooked into VDX (6740)? Any advise on compatible 40G QSFP+ direct attach cable would be greatly appreciated.

We tried the one from HPE (FlexNetwork X240 40 Gbps QSFP+ to QSFP+ direct attach) without any luck (no signal and incompatibility warnings on the VDX side). 40G-QSFP-C-0101 from Brocade looked more promising with the signal present, and even successful Port-Channel formation, but no data was going through.

Thank you.

Hello ,
please use a passive cable or an active cable from HP
HP does not accept third party manufacturers by GBICS, but a passive cable could work.
