cable type for 10g card

MIP_GMT01

We got following 10g card in FAS6280 which currently got 10g twinax fd cables plugged in. I am wondering is it possible to use 10g sr fd cables in this card?

The "Dual 10G Ethernet Controller CNA SFP+" is probably a X1139A or X1140A. You can confirm this by running "sysconfig -ca" on the controllers.

X1140A comes with empty SFP+ cages and is intended to be used with TwinAx cables. X1139A comes with SR optical SFPs. According to the Product Bulletin, it is not allowed to install SR SFPs in the X1140A, or remove the SFPs from the X1139.
