MSA 2040, which SFP's are supported

I am trying to find out which HP parts numbers of SFP's are supported by the MSA2040, I have searched on HP's site, and the only doucment which lists SFP's is the quick specs. The part number shown here is for packs of 4, but I'm looking for the individual part numbes eg AJ718A or AJ716A.

 

Please can you help??

Re: MSA 2040, which SFP's are supported

I guess it is 4 because you always need to install them according to the rules you found in the quickspec table.

Hope this helps!

Re: MSA 2040, which SFP's are supported

what if you only had one controller, and only wanted to fit two SFP's are these SFP's unique to the 2040?

Re: MSA 2040, which SFP's are supported

So there is only one supported SFP??, I thought there was at least 4

 

Why is the documentation for this so poor???

Re: MSA 2040, which SFP's are supported

They are the part numbers for the pack of 4 of each type, I'm trying to find out the part number of a single SFP.

Also the 1GB iSCSI SFP, does that have RJ45 type connection of fibre?

Re: MSA 2040, which SFP's are supported

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I still really would like to know the individual part numbers for each of the SFP's supported though

Don't know ... maybe you can buy them as a spare part.

 

But you need at least 2 of them for a single controller.

For all - the table is here

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/productbulletin.html#spectype=worldwide&type=html&doci...

Features tab.

I think they assume you always need 4 transceivers to built a supported configuration on a dual controller array.

No idea about single controller arrays - sorry.

Consider to ask HP!


Hope this helps!
