Re: upgrade the ICX6610 8 10G ports

Hi chenbin1,

I believe that you can only add the temporary trail POD key to get the initial 4 ports. You cannot have one normal POD and then add the temporary POD key for a total of 8 ports.  I am working to get this confirmed but I'm afraid this might be expected behavior and the only work-around for the total of 8 ports is to have 2 normal PODs.

Please stay tuned!
