We have DS-C9124-0-K9 MDS 9124 4Gbps FC switch without SFPs, we have old "Agilent“ SFP Transceivers which we tried to put on DS-C9124-0-K9 but it's not suported.

1. question is there a way to use Agilent SFP Transceivers Agilent SFP Transceivers on our Cisco DS-C9124-0-K9;

2. question if we have to use Cisco SFPs, is it neccesery for SFPs on EVA to be Cisco too?

1. You cannot use the Agilent SFP for your MDS 9124 4G FC switch. Here is a link on which SFP is supported on the MDS platform:


2. You don't have to use the Cisco SFPs on the HP EVA, since the EVA might not detect it. All you have to match is the wavelength and the fiber type. Let's say you are using MMF and DS-SFP-FC4G-SW SFP, your EVA's optic should be for MMF, FC 4Gbps and using 850nm wavelength.
