I have a 7840 that I'm trying to connect to my Arista Network Switches. The only cables I have (in the present situation) are 10G Twinax cables made by Arista (quality stuff)
Brocade, in thier infinite wisdom, has decided that unless I buy thier cables and SFP, they are not going to let me connect to my network switch, which could be the initiation for a lot of discussion.
However, in my experience, vendors have a 'work around" (caveat emptor and all that) to bypass this non-sense and I'm hoping someone can share it with me.
I'm 1000+ miles from home with no way to get a "brocade" cable, and coming back is a very poor option...
