Hmm, this datasheet shows Time Domain Reflectometry support on 48-port
copper module, but no Digital Optical Monitoring support on fiber module.
So again, fiber connections have less layer-1 monitoring capabilities than
the copper ones...

Is this just a temporary limitation of the initial NX-OS release, 
or do these SFP cards suffer from the same problems as the 6748-SFP
cards for Cat6500 where DOM still doesn't work?

    Thanks & kind regards,
