We have IBM Blade chassis H with IO module brocade switch with below issue
Inconsistent firmware versions on partitions
Have tried firmwarecommit and firmwarerestore commands already with no success.
I want to know how can we have same version on both primary and secondary partitions?
What is the impact of staying on different version in the same switch?

finally i am able to have both at same fw level, But i get firmware download is in progress message, when i check status.
Can this be considered OK?

it's not considered ok and will most likely prevent future FOS upgrades. What did you do to to get both partitions upgraded after last status? Is it still showing firmwaredownload in progress?

its hard to tell what caused the firmwareupgrade to still run. Options might be to hareboot the switch or as a last approach try killing the running process ID under root.

have you tried the hareboot?
Killing processes under root can be risky and should only be done when support personel reviewed the data and provided an action plan. I would advise you to open a case with your support provider to be on the save side.
