VSP7000 v10.2.1 supported HP Direct-Attach cable snafu
« on: March 13, 2014, 05:06:28 AM »
Just as a heads-up for those of us intending to use the HP J9281B 1m DA cables, which are supported as per the v10.2.1 release notes: HP has (at least) two different types of these cables, and the switch only recognises one of them. The supported cables have an earlier manufactoring date, and have a straight release tab, with a thick cable. The unsupported modules have a wider, more rounded release tab, with the thinner cable running through it.

The same applies to the J9283B 3m cables, although we only had the newer models of those, so we weren't able to confirm functionality of the older model.

In the image: left the older, supported cable, right the non-supported newer cable.
