couple resources you can use to verify the cabling:

 

The NetApp® Interoperability Matrix Tool (IMT) defines the qualified components and versions you can use to build FC/FCoE, iSCSI, NFS and CIFS configurations.

Re: HPE DAC Cable

What is the exact HW configuration of the EF280?  (What variant, HIC installed, etc.)

 

Generally, 10GbE SFP+ twinax cable connections with 3rd party switches "just worK", especially if you use the switch's approved cables - it's standards-based and usually reliable.
