The reason you cannotfind the 57-1000027-01 is because that SFP's has been EOL since 2013 and is not supported on a 8G or higher platform.

 

Do not use ( and let me repeat !!!DO NOT USE!!!) unsupported SFP's in your environment. I can't stress enough the importance of good working SFP's. You may save a few bucks on Ebay but you'll spend more in getting your environment up and running and the chances are they will only provide you problems and your OPEX cost will go thru the roof.
