8770 VDX NOS compatibilty matrix for a 40G Linecard

[ Edited ]

 

I am running NOS  ver 5.0.2 on a VDX 8770 and attempting to install a 12 Port 40G Line card

 

I  receieve the following error. 

 

, 13969, M1 | Active, INFO, VDX8770-4, FRU L3 insertion detected.
, 13970, M1 | Active, WARNING, vdx1.pgt, Switch status changed from HEALTHY to MARGINAL.
, M1 | Active, WARNING, vdx1.pgt, Switch status change contributing factor LC: 1 LC failures ((null)).
, M1 | Active, ERROR, VDX8770-4, L3 with ID 0 may not be supported on this platform, check firmware version as a possible cause.
, M1 | Active, ERROR, VDX8770-4, L3 is set to faulty, rc=2005f.

 

Anyone able to tell me where I can find a NOS/Linecard compatibility matirx?

@gdavis

 

this is a know behavior and KB Article Number 000002752 is available.

 

I'm not authorized to post such article here, so i would suggest to contact Brocade Support or you Supplier to get the instructions.

Thanks

 

Actually I powered off the Line card  ("power-off Linecard 3) and then set to  power-on from the admin prompt.

It then succeeded in Loading the card. ( Note There was no exisiting config for that slot)

 

Incidently the 2nd VDX recognised the card immediately and needed no intervention.

@gdavis

 

you are on right way, the behavior is caused due missed startup-config for the card.

 

as said, unfortunately I'm not authorized to post such KB article, you should ask by Support.
