Software versions listed in the Affected Software section above, will recognize Extreme branded optics as an unqualified 3rd party optic. Although, the Software OS is programmed to allow ports using non-qualified optics to link “UP”, the optical-monitoring features may not be functional and will not be supported.
NOTE: Previously labelled Brocade optics may now bear the Extreme logo. If an optic has an Extreme label with an EEPROM reading Brocade, this is not a concern as there is no change in functionality or part number.
A message like the following will be seen in the syslog\raslog upon insertion of an optic that is not recognized by the software as a supported optic (even if it is Extreme branded) if you have not upgraded to a version of software that supports the newer optics:
