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

Kind of what I was thinking but just wanted another opinion.....
HP is rebranded finistar, but they refuse finistar originals...
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...

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