    Connecting a X520-DA2 to an HP Procurve switch

    Daniel Wells

      I have three hosts with X520-DA2's in them (1-SLES10sp4 and 2-VMware ESXi 5).  I have connected them to an HP Procurve E5412zl (J8698A)switch with a 10G module (J9538) and an HP direct connect cable (J9285B).  I am unable to get communication to cross the wire from the hosts to the switch.

       

      Questions:

      Is the HP SFP+ connector that is on their direct connect cable compatible with the Intel X520-DA2?

       

      If compatibility is not the problem, what has to be done to get these two to communicate?
