OVLOCKEX Violation

Supports only HP transceivers

Status: Current — The violation is standing.

HP networking equipment often includes SFP, SFP+, or similar transceiver slots. These accept only HP-made transceivers, despite the fact that these are standard components.


  • The transceiver's EEPROM can be reprogrammed to have HP's vendor ID, causing it to be accepted. There are mail-in services which will perform this change, for a fee.
