I have decided to sell my VDX switch and stick with my ICX switch. This switch is in good condition with minimal scuffs. The Compact Flash card was replaced with a new card as there seemed to be an issue with the original card. I will send the original in case you would want it.
fohdeesha helped me update this switch and get the flash card reflashed so major props to him as he also helped me get the licenses extracted so I can email those to you as well.

The switch will come with the following:
-All ports licensed: 48 10Gb SFP+ ports and 4 40GB QSFP ports. These are the original licenses that the switch came with. See switch output below.
-2 spare power supplies. I have verified that all 4 power supplies that I have work properly.
-17x open/used Brocade Gbics, 9x new/unopened Brocade Gbics, and 2 Brocade 10Gb fiber SFP+'s.
-Console cable.
-Standard rack rails.
-4x 1m 40Gb Brocade passive DACs.
-2x 5m Brocade 40Gb to 10Gb breakout DACs.
-a 5m Fiber Cable for the FC SFP+'s.
-and 4x 3m 10Gb +addon Active DACs .

$700 $675 $625 shipped to CONUS takes it all. I would also considered a partial trade for a 24 port ICX switch with POE and 8x 10Gb SFP+ ports and/or 8TB or larger SATA NAS drives.

I will add 4x 1m 40Gb Brocade passive DACs, 2x 5m Brocade 40Gb to 10Gb breakout DACs, a 5m Fiber Cable for the FC SFP+'s, and 4x 3m 10Gb +addon Active DACs for nothing more.
