Hi folks,

Excuse my ignorance, I try to avoid orange/aqua cables...

We recently had a rack of servers + SAN installed with 8Gb FC, and long story short, the vendor will only supply & install 5m OM4 cables.

*grumble grumble FCoE grumble 2m patch grumble*

AFAICT, OM4 is to OM3 what G.657A2 is to G.652 - completely interchangeable, especially for such a short run, just don't expect to wrap it around a pencil. And so I can swap out these stupidly long cables with properly measured OM3.

Is this sensible?
