Hi I currently have a issue with a
IBM SAN40-B switch or 5100 brocade
|249840E||Express SAN40B-4 40 port 8Gbps FC Switch|
|45W0496||4Gbps FC SW SFP Transceiver 8 pk|
The port shows up as a U_port (see word doc attached)
The SFP's supplied are finisar SFP"s according to the matrix below they need to be Brocade or SmartOptics
Anyone had this issue

I cannot seem to find the .doc you attached.
Anyways, all 8Gbps Brocade switches (300, 5100 and 5300 for instance) require Brocade branded SFP's, else the port won't come up. The only exceptions are certain LWL SFP's and colored SFP's (CWDM). The port will show its State as Mod_Inv in the switchShow output.
