Hi James,

This is normal. The switch has two partitions that software can be installed to (called 'primary' and 'secondary'). This output indicates that the EXOS version loaded on 'primary' is, and the that the EXOS version loaded on 'secondary' is It also indicates that the 'primary' partition is selected to be used and is currently booted.
