Hi,everyone.

 

Now,I will try to use "Mellanox QSFP to SFP+ cable adapter" to VDX6740T.
And I trying to use SFP+(10Gbase-LR).

 

So,I would like to ask you the following questions;
 
・What are the commands needed to implement?
・LAG and VRRF to implemet?

not sure what youmeaning with:

 

->Now,I will try to use "Mellanox QSFP

 

do you want to use Mellanox QSFP in Brocade VDX ?

 

generally, Brocade Switches require and Support only Genuine Brocade Optics

Hi,

thank you reply.

 

 

>do you want to use Mellanox QSFP in Brocade VDX ?

yes,

If want to implement the SFP+(LR) to VDX6740T, QSFP has recognized that it is necessary.

Recognition is wrong?

 

 

thank you.

Re: HOW TO QSFP+ to SFP+ adapter.

The Mellanox QSA can be used in the VDX with NOS versions greater than 5.0. (IIRC)  You will need to set the 40GbE port to breakout using the following

eg

switch(config)# hardware
switch(config-hardware)# connector 2/0/1
switch(config-connector-2/0/1)# sfp breakout

Depending on the version of NOS you are running you may need to save the config and then reload the VDX for the breakout to take effect.  Dynamic breakout (no reload) was introduced in NOS6.0.
