We've seen the same here with 3rd party Copper SFPs, and "service
unsupported-transceiver" didn't help. Box didn't actually complain about
that anyway.

No problems with "Cisco" quad-price SFPs though. Perhaps they found a
new way to recognize 3rd party Cisco-coded SFPs... no clue.

The same 3rd party brand fiber SFPs have no issues.
