Cisco DS-C9124-K9 unsupported sfp transceiver

Hello
We have a Cisco MDS-9124 FC Fibre Switch and some 3th-pard SFP Transceiver.
The MDS now show that these SFP Transceivers are unsupported an the port shows as failed.
I found in Google that there should be a hidden command line interface command that enables support for these transceivers, called:
service unsupported-transceiver

But on my system, this command is not working, unknown command.
The OS running on the Appliance is a SAN-OS 3.3

How we can add the support for non-cisco SFP Transceivers on this system?

Thanks you very much for any help

Unfortunately, the command "service unsupported-transceiver" is not present on all Cisco devices.  If Cisco will not confirm a way to use 3rd party SFP's, you'll have to get the Cisco approved part.

A lot of suppliers provide compatible SFP solutions.
You may find them by google.

In fact, all optical module are not manufactured and even designed by Cisco.
What Cisco does is programming some code into SFP then markup by 1000%.

You may ask your third party supplier to provide "Cisco compatible SFP".
