nonapproved SFP?

Hallo Hallo,

here is a puzzle for the experts. I have a customer with a new 4503 with a Sup4 and a WS-X4448-GB-SFP running 12.2(25)EWA. He has some freshly purchased Cisco GB SFPs (GLC-T) - however he is getting an error message that the SFPs are 'Unapproved' - in the log

%C4K_CHASSIS-3-SFPINTEGRITYCHECKFAILED:

this would make sense if they were third party SFPs - but they are Cisco's!

Any ideas? I am all ears...

thanx,

William

Re: nonapproved SFP?

Hi,

Are you pretty sure that those are Cisco SFPs?

Where did you get them from?

What do you see when you type in this:

show idprom interface

At the vendor part you have to see something this:

Vendor Name : Methode Elec.

_Not_ like this :

Vendor Name : CISCO@SYSTEMS

Helps?

Re: nonapproved SFP?

Unfortunately I don't have access to the machine at the moment. But I am going to have him RMA those SFPs and get some new ones - they could be some sort of counterfeits. Once I get my hands on them I can give them the hairy eyeball and see where exactly they came from!

thanx for the tip!

~Wm
