Hello and sorry for asking a possibly stupid question, quite new to Extreme switches. 

We have a few new x440-G2-24p-10GE4's and 10G SFP+'s (model 10301). When I insert them into the switch I get the error below. I read reference to needing a license but each post referenced the 24t model, we have the 24p (not sure if that makes a difference). The SFP's will be used for uplink. 


 <Warn:HAL.Port.OpticNotCompatPortType> The SF+_SR optic module is not compatible with SFP ports - please remove it from port 24.


Thank you for any assistance!

Port 24 on the X440-G2-24p is a 1G combo port.

The 10G capable ports on this switch are port 25-28, located on the back of the switch. You will need a 10G port speed license to allow 10G operation on these ports.

Also, I wanted to add that the optic you have will work in the rear 10G ports.

Perfect, thank you both! Exactly the info I needed, just a little embarrassed that I didn't find them in my searching.
