We have installed a 6500B and we want to add SFP to connect 10Gb ISL between a 6500B switch and a 6000B switch. In both cases, the SFP show errors. Support matrix indicates that they are compatible.
The errors shown are:
94 94 b45e00 id 8G Mod_Inv FC "Speed Mismatch / Incompatible SFP"
95 95 b45f00 id 8G Mod_Inv FC "Speed Mismatch / Incompatible SFP"
The SFP is HP B-series 10Gb SFP+ short range transceiver
You must perform some special configuration in the SFP port to be recognized?
Thanks for your help.

->You must perform some special configuration in the SFP port to be recognized?
First, you need a 10 Gb FC License, is this License Present ?
in HP SN6500B = Native Brocade 6520, the both First Octet can be used for 10 Gb FC in example from Port 0-7, and Port Speed must be set with the command "portcfgoctetspeedcombo" command.
keep in mind the command is disruptive, for details refer command reference guide

the output of licenseshow command:
Full Ports on Demand license - additional 48 port upgrade license
Extended Fabric license
Fabric Watch license
Performance Monitor license
Fabric Vision license
I suppose that we need aditional 10 Gigabit FCIP/Fibre Channel (10G license) to create a 10G ISL?
