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.

, 13970, M1 | Active, WARNING, vdx1.pgt, Switch status changed from HEALTHY to MARGINAL.

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.

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.

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.
