    This is where sometimes the respect for HP is lost in my opinion.

    I've had GBICs that are intended for FC SANS running in our netgears (SFP GBICS mind..) of different manufacturers too - proco(?), agilent, to name a few...

    Don't bother with HPs though (funny how the HP queens always go quiet on the old GBIC interoperability threads)
