Firmware Mismatch LP vs MP?

Any seen this specific issue. I swear I uploaded the correct image files when i just upgraded an mlx4 from 4.x.x to 5.1.0c

I upgraded the monitor, boot and application and primary images on the MP. I then upgraded the boot,monitor and fcpga file images and application image for the 1Gx20GC card and I still get the error below..

Warning: Slot 1's monitor image is not the same as that in MP's flash!
Please use 'lp cont-boot no-sync 1' to continue the LP boot w/o sync, or
       use 'lp cont-boot sync 1' to continue the LP boot with sync!
Sync will be automatically started if "lp cont-boot" is not issued within 1 minute.

Is this a situation where the correct file is not in the file?

Any help here is appreciated.

Re: Firmware Mismatch LP vs MP?


The problem was resolved by powering completely off and reloading all the files again. It seems as though one of the firmware files did not get completely uploaded the first-time.
