ICX6450-48p stack shows SFP errror on console but not in log or sh stack command

When using the console i see a error "Port 1/2/3 optics inserted, wait for Phy port initilization..."

but when ssh into the box "sh stack" looks good the port is up and okay and there is nothing in the log.

 

I am using two of the Brocade Stacking cables to stack these two switches

 

any Ideas why? or is there a bug?

Turn on optical monitoring:  optical-monitor

Wait for a few minutes, then check out the SFP: show optic 1/2/3

See if things look okay.

The console message you see is just that, a message.  If you are using the 10G twinax cables, there is no optical monitoring support, so it's pointless to enable optical monitoring if you are not using any form of SFP other than the stack cable.

If the command "show stack" shows a proper output, then you are fine.
