Huawei – transceiver phony-alarm-disable aka service unsupported-transceiver

We all know that it is a bad idea, not just because of (the rumored) missing support, but also because of the money vendors lose if you don’t buy genuine transceivers, there is still a possibility to protect you investment and recycle your SFPs/SFP+s/… when you change vendors.

What Cisco calls „service unsupported-transceiver“ on IOS/IOS XE and „transceiver permit pid all“ on IOS XR is called „transceiver phony-alarm-disable“ on Huawei.

Give it a try, but don’t blame me if TAC hangs up and never supports you again 😉
