Can someone tell me if an Amer.com MGBS-GLX10  and MGBM-GSX SFP modules are compatible with HP switches?

HP is rebranded finistar, but they refuse finistar originals...
Craig Beck

That's true... but if the SFP doesn't have the magic-token in its firmware it won't work... just something to remember :-)

For info, HP decided to block Finistar SFPs as poor-quality counterfeits were being made.  Saying that though, depending on the switch and firmware you might get them to work...

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I dont see generousity behind this action....
Latest firmware should just log warning that unsupported SFP is running
