Nexus 5020 support of HP passive twinax cable

Hi experts,

   I have a customer who is having some issues with 5m passive HP twinax cables, 537965-001, with a Chelsio 10G NIC.  Aside from NIC driver issue, if NX-OS recognizes this SFP+, should it be expected to work in a 5020 running 4.2(1)N1(1)?  Does anyone know whether Cisco has certified passive HP twinax cables?  I have included output to 'transceiver details' to a Cisco twinax and the HP (WL GORE) cables.  Thanks.

should it be expected to work in a 5020 running 4.2(1)N1(1)?

IF the twinax cable does not have a Cisco logo on it, it won't work.

Hi Addy,

The list of Cisco certified Twinax cables can be found in the Twinax Cables Certification Matrix for Cisco Nexus 2000 and Nexus 5000 Series Switches Data Sheet.
