Transceiver issues with SFP-10G-SR-S and C9500-48Y4C

Stefan Bischoff

Hello together,

 

are there any knowm issues on compatibility for the original Cisco SFP-10G-SR-S and the C9500 Series switches?

 

We have the problem, that the inserted SFP+ are recognized as 1000BaseZX SFP and are in a non-functional state.

 

Working C9500 in the US running IOS 16.9.3, the interfaces show in inventory:

 

NAME: "TwentyFiveGigE1/0/24", DESCR: "SFP+ 10GBASE-SR"

PID: SFP-10G-SR-S        , VID: V01  , SN: AVD2147DCD3 

 

NAME: "TwentyFiveGigE2/0/24", DESCR: "SFP+ 10GBASE-SR"

PID: SFP-10G-SR-S        , VID: V01  , SN: AVD2147DCDC    

 

 

Not working ones, even after upgrading the switches to the most current version, Cisco recommended IOS (IOS XE Software, Version 16.12.04)

It appears these may be the wrong gbic, as they are displayed as SFP-10G-SR instead of SFP-10G-SR-S.

 

NAME: "TwentyFiveGigE1/0/48", DESCR: "GE ZX"

PID: SFP-10G-SR          , VID: V03  , SN: AVD2231D3TE

 

NAME: "TwentyFiveGigE2/0/48", DESCR: "GE ZX"

PID: SFP-10G-SR          , VID: V03  , SN: AVD2231D3RW

 

It seems that the modules are manufactured by the same company for Cisco, all of them are AVDxxxxxxxxx.

 

These are original Cisco SFP+, no third party modules!

 

Shall we return these SFP+ ?

 

Kind regards

 

Stefan

That sounds like a bug.  
Have you raised this issue with TAC?

Hi Leo,

 

At the moment no, but we will do this, if there is no workaround available. In the bug tool there is no such issue present, so it seems something new.

 

Kind regards

We have installed a workaround by using thirdparty modules now, but we have installed the failing modules as well, so a TAC case can be opened on them.

 

Kind regards

If you replaced the SFP, changed the fiber patch, upgraded the firmware, the last call is TAC RMA on the way

Interesting is the wavelength of 1310nm, which is not a SR typical value of 850nm

Hello.

 

It works fine with 16.12.02 version

About possible causes of malfunction:

1) it is necessary to check grounding (9500 switches are very sensitive to it);

2) you can try disabling and enabling problem port.

3)is this sfp 10G original or not?

Thanks everyone for discussing this topic. The SFP+ are wrong branded, original Cisco SFP+. All defective SFP+ are replaced now and the new original ones are working - by the way they are now from Finisar, instead of Cisco Avago. I don't know why Cisco choosed Avago for manufacturing them.

Thanks a lot.

 

Kind regards

Do you have sfp pictures and idprom output I have same problems

 thank you

 

 

Sorry,

 

I only posted the output of the idprom. I didn't took pictures from them.

 As you can read, they were wrong branded and identified as "GE-ZX"

 

NAME: "TwentyFiveGigE1/0/48", DESCR: "GE ZX"

PID: SFP-10G-SR , VID: V03 , SN: AVD2231D3TE

 

NAME: "TwentyFiveGigE2/0/48", DESCR: "GE ZX"

PID: SFP-10G-SR , VID: V03 , SN: AVD2231D3RW

 

Cisco replaced them and everything is fine now

 

 

Have a nice day

 

Kind regards

But my transceiver still can't use

 Vendor name is cisco-avago 

Transceiver type is SFP+ 10Gbase-SR 

Which model I need to change for C9500 24y4c?

Thanks

Hi Folks,

It is a normal issue.

Just interchange the LC connecting the SFP+. It works just fine.

Check: show idprom interface Interface name

           Show interfaces Interface name transceiver detail

Please note that the SFP+ module should be detected by the device.

 

The version of the C9500 switch we are running is:
