DAC Error

    When I insert my Tripplite 1M DAC, the switch throws an error.  I known in other Aruba products you can surpress DAC compatiblity warnings. How is this accomplished on this switch line?  I rather reserve the warning signals for things that actually matter to me.

    @CaptainPlanet The 1930 switch will support 3rd party optics, but has no way to turn off alerts for those optics.

    I got Cisco DAC Cable working, its listed as not supported in my Log.

    Any chances to overwrite the error, as the switch blinks continously red?

    @Xeroxxx Unfortunately it's a 3rd party optic and can't be overwritten.

    So its intended if you use a 3rd Party DAC the switch continously blinks orange?

    Then I would like to do a feature request to acknowledge this warning/error without getting support for that.


    Thank you

    @Xeroxxx I had the same issue with a dac from my switch to my router. I ended up with two sfp+ transceivers from 10gtek. Cost $20 each so I could get an Intel comp one for the firewall and HPP/Aruba compatible one for the switch, then a short patch cable. Cost a little more but still not bad and has been working great.

    Thanks. I'll be doing the same.

    SO you mean the 10gtek DAC cables worked without any warning messages? Because in your next sentence you mentioned <<so I could get an Intel comp one for the firewall and HPP/Aruba compatible one>> so compatible one - which one? Also how long were they?

    Thank you

    Dell, Cisco and SFP+ transceivers all work. The DAC cables the same except they will flash a red error light, just ignore it.  I don't think people will be paying $100 for a "HP" DAC when the switch is only twice that. HPE ARUBA are really losing their market. Nothing special about this 1930 tbh. Unfinished firmware and a community with 200 members is a joke.
