Unable to direct connect at 4GB speed from Apple Mac Xserver to REO or FCO3

Version 1

    Problem: A Direct connection between Apple's Mac Xserver and any Overland 4GB fibre channel product does not produce link status.

    Solution: Ensure your customer is using a 4GB SFP in the server's FC HBA. Both the 2GB SFP and the 4GB SFP look similar. The main difference is the 4GB SFP comes with a sticker identifying it as a 4GB SFP (see attachment for a picture of the two SFPs). Also many of the FC HBAs come with copper SFPs. Make sure the customer is using a MIA to allow for an optical connection.
