    Dear all,
    we are trying to establish an uplink to a Cisco 2960 (48 ports of Gb
    and two 10 Gb Ethernet SFP+ ports). At the Blade site there is one IBM
    10 GBE
    850nm SFP+ Transceiver (CRU 44W4408) in the first slot of the CVR-X2-
    SFP and
    at the Cisco 2960 site we used the CISCO SFP+ 10 Gb transceiver. But
    there is
    no link (electrical contact). What can we do next?

    Many thanks for any hints!

  2. Have you checked the switches on both sides to make sure that the
    devices recognize the SFPs you've inserted, and haven't kicked them
    out for whatever odd reason that they will?

    ie. show log
    show int te 0/1 capabilities

    A small progress: We replaced the 10(!) Gb SFP+ Transceiver in the CVR-
    X2-SFP V02 converter by

    a 1 (ONE) Gb SFP and connected it to a 1Gb port of our 2960 switch.
    Now we have a link I mean there

    is now the green light on at the 2960 port.

    But still we can't communicate from outside with one of our blades. We
    are also worry about the fact not

    to see the 3110x 10Gb external uplink port by the Cisco Network
    Assistant. There are only 16 Gb ports

    plus 1x fa0. Very strange.

    Regards, Rainer
