Ahmed, 

Although you can plug the module into the switches while powered on, in order for the XOS to see them you need to reboot the switch.  Please make sure you are using a version of code 15.1.x or later along with Boot rom 2.0.1.7 or later as well.

Thanks Bill.
Why is it needed to have this version of XOS and BootRom

It is not for specifics on the 2-Port card, but there was a lot of work done on CPU efficiency in XOS with that combination of code.  The recommendation is that you use that firwmaware/bootrom or later.
