MDS Term misunderstanding

Hello,

I have questions regarding the MDS platform. I'll be very glad if you can answer me to the following:

1) Is the term FCOT (Fibre Channel optical transmitter) identical to the term SFP (small form-factor pluggable)?

2) What exactly means ELP and ESC failure on interface?

Cheers,

Dancho

Re: MDS Term misunderstanding

1) Yes, an FCOT is commonly reffered to as an SFP.

2) ELP = Exchange Link Parameter (or Protocol?)

ESC = Exchange Switch Capabilities

These both have to do with link discovery and negotiation. If you have a failure of this kind on an interface, it would mean your port failed to negotiate a link with whatever its connected to. There are many possible reasons for the errors and would require further investigation...possibly a trace.

Hope that helps...
