Re: connect 5406R to 2930F with DAC cable

Please work with your Aruba partner or local sales team.
Both 5406R zl2 and 2930F support the J9281B DAC cable if the 2930F is a model with SFP+ ports (some models only have 1 Gbps normal SFP) and the 5400R has a module with SFP+ slots.
DAC Cable has a transceiver module on each side of the cable that fits in an SFP+ slot, so that is how you connect the switches. The J9281B is a 1-meter cable (appr 3 ft), the J9283B is the 3m/9ft version in case your switches are outside the 1m cable range.
