    The transceiver question is typically on them mind during every deployment.  Below is the link to our current combined ArubaOS-Switch and ArubaOS-CX Supported Transceiver Guide and I have attached important information about the use of 3rd party transceivers.

    Hi Rob.

     

    Do Aruba AOS-CX (6300M) switches support HPE FlexNetwork Transceivers?

     

    Regards,

    Carlos Villanueva

    AOS-CX(config)# allow-unsupported-transceiver log-interval

      <1440-10080>  The logging interval (Default: 1440 minutes)

      none          Disable unsupported transceiver logging

    I can't find that in the release notes, is that only for 6300/6400 or also on the 8400?

    Is 10.05.001 a stable version?

    Yes, it is.

     

    Currently (28 August 2020) ArubaOS-CX 10.05.0010 superseded the ArubaOS-CX 10.05.0001. So go with the latest if possible.
