    Fedex delivered me a S2500-24P today.

    I couldn't find any information on SFP+ compatibility out there. Prices for the Aruba Networks OEM modules are way more than I can justify for home usages.

    I tried a Cisco and an HP DAC. Neither were recognized... The port dummy light comes on, but "show interface transceiver" returns nothing. I don't have any other transceivers to test with.

    Does anyone have any experience with these?

    Test results look pretty good. sender = dual Xeon X5360, receiver = dual Xeon X5660
