Speed Mismatch / Incompatible SFP Brocade 2498

Hello, since we've installed new SFP, switch shows error

Firstly I thought it's because firmware version which was 6.1. But I did upgrade up to 7.2 and nothing changed.

 

Is this error serious? Can we leave it like this? Maybe the vendor is wrong, please help.

according to your pictures you inserted 8gbps sfps into your switch that are not brocade labeled, that means it wont work, brocade limited the use of sfps from other vendors.

 

see this post

and many other on this forums dealing with the same issue.

 

in short

 

8gpbs plattform uses only brocade sfps.
