So as it turns out, i *DO* for some reason have 2 different XFP's .... Which is strange because all the XFP's i purchased were sold as FINISAR's. But none the less, it all works, without issue lol. Now as for temps....the only thing it tells me is "Good" there is no actual temp reading it seems i can find or display via the CLI and referring to the manual it just states "Good" is well, good...
Code:port 1 (FINISAR CORP. :S ) : good port 2 (FINISAR CORP. :S ) : good port 3 (FINISAR CORP. :S ) : good port 4 (FINISAR CORP. :S ) : good port 5 (FINISAR CORP. :S ) : good port 6 (Opnext Inc. :S ) : good port 7 (Opnext Inc. :S ) : good port 8 (FINISAR CORP. :S ) : good
I see. Thank you for checking. After studying the CLI I see the same thing - no actual temp reading just good or perhaps"bad" when is too bad. I wish wasn't like that, but I guess they didn't think of it back then.
By the way I found switch like our which has the fans not reversed. It looks exactly the way I made mine with the fans, but this one is just like that from the manufacturer.
This proves that is perfectly ok for the switch to work either way in case you want to change it on yours too. Most XG2000 are "R" on ebay, I found this to be rather unusual, maybe that's why they are the only one available on ebay and so cheap. It's good for us anyways.
