CISCO MDS 9124 SFP Compatibility

We recently received a number of spare SFPs in case of failure of the installed items. After having installed one of these SFPs in our test bed we receive the following notification:

%PORT-5-IF_DOWN_FCOT_VENDOR_NOT_SUPPORTED: %$VSAN 1%$ Interface fc1/1 is down (Error disabled - FCOT vendor not supported)

On checking the online documentation we located the following:

Error Message ETHPORT-5-IF_DOWN_FCOT_VENDOR_NOT_SUPPORTED: Interface [chars] is down (Error disabled - Fcot vendor not supported).

Explanation The inserted small form-factor pluggable (SFP) device is not supported.

Recommended Action Contact customer support for a list of authorized SFP vendors.

Introduced Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 1.2(2a).

Does anyone know of any workarounds for this? Also does anyone know where we may locate a defnitive list of supported vendors [other than waiting on results from customer support].

Thanks

Hi Daniel,

As far as I know, only Cisco SFPs are supported.

Here is a link to the information on what SFPs are supported and where:

Cisco MDS 9000 Family Pluggable Transceivers Data Sheet

Best regards,
