Hello,

Depending on the platform you can use the command "show idprom interface " to show the Serial number, revision and model of the GBIC/SFP.

Hi Jorge,

i have the serial number with me, i wanted to verify the product. Do we have any tool in cisco.com to check the originlity of the product.

Thank you,

Stick your SFP into the appliance. Non-Cisco approved SFP will cause the appliance to disable the port.

There's a "exception" and I'm not discussing that.

By saying "Non-Cisco Approved SFP", do you actually mean "Cisco Brand SFP", or are their other 3rd party SFPs that are approved by Cisco as "Non-Cisco Approved SFP"s?

"Non-Cisco Approved SFP" means SFPs that doesn't have "Cisco" badge/stickers on it. :)
