I search to connect Brocade B300 SFP to HP 2530 SFP
Tranceiver and fiber :
For brocade : 4GB SFP ( ref : 57-1000013-01)
For HP2530 : 1GB SFP (ref : j4858C)
Fiber : 5 m multimode 50/125 duplex fiber patch cable LC-LC
In brocade B300, i have configure the port to 1GB but i have this message :
"port faulted due to SFP validation failure. Please check if the SFP is valid for the configuration"

--->>>For HP2530 : 1GB SFP (ref : j4858C)
is a Native Ethernet SFP, and such SFP are not support in Brocade FC Switches.
--->>>For brocade : 4GB SFP ( ref : 57-1000013-01)
this SFP is qualified by Brocade and should work, however I believe some Sorts of OLD very SFP with Finisar Signature are not.
