    6600ML-24XG 10GBE Layer3 Gigabit switch J9265-69001

    Hi, does anyone know a 10GBE transceiver that will work in the 6600 HPE switch?  There must be an FS module that works in this switch?

    I cant find any compatible from the HP list or on FS

    I have an fibre module and SFP+ cables but cannot find any 10Gbe Ethernet modules!

    Thanks for your help!

    The transceiver guide is, for some reason, silent on this despite the switch being listed in it, but the Quickspec (https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=c04111706) answers the question:

    HP X132 10G SFP+ LC ER Transceiver J9153A
    HP X132 10G SFP+ LC LR Transceiver J9151A
    HP X132 10G SFP+ LC LRM Transceiver J9152A
    HP X132 10G SFP+ LC SR Transceiver J9150A

    FS equivalent for a J9151A would be their P/N 31581.

    Sorry, meant to specify RJ45 Copper 10GBe Transceivers.

    I have the J9150A for my optical uplink and these work perfect.  I now would like to convert some of the SFP ports to be able to use RJ45 10GBe Cat 6 cables for my local network, if this is possible?

    Thanks for your help

    No supported module from what I can tell.  I'd normally suggest getting FS to send you a 10Gbase-T transceiver that reports itself as 10Gbase-SR, but that probably won't work here since, as far as I know, FS doesn't make a copper transceiver that has the extra hardware that will make a Procurve/Aruba switch think it's first party (and the E6600 went EOL before the "allow-unsupported-transceiver" command was introduced).

    Thanks,

    FS are very good, I used the chat service and the said the same, no supported device.  However they emailed the next day (today) and said there is one module that could work:

    813874-B21 HPE BladeSystem c-Class Compatible 10GBASE-T SFP+ Copper RJ-45 30m Optical Transceiver Module - FS

    Its cheaper for me to buy a 10GBE RJ45 switch in this case, so wont end up having to try the module.
