HP SN6500B 96/96 and HP B-series 10Gb SFP+ SRT with error Speed Mismatch / Incompatible SFP

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.

Yes.

 

First, you need a 10 Gb FC License, is this License Present ?

 

Second:

 

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:

 

licenseshow:
licenseshow        :
rgRRGPLFTWJLCE9HPMZKGKJafBDDAT39B7LFN:
    Full Ports on Demand license - additional 48 port upgrade license
ADXMErRGXKR9mT7ttJNAfF73ZMZSXBL7BJGWN:
    Extended Fabric license
    Fabric Watch license
    Performance Monitor license
    Trunking license
    Fabric Vision license


I suppose that we need aditional 10 Gigabit FCIP/Fibre Channel (10G license)  to create a 10G ISL?
