Hi, Alok. The X440 switches support only EXOS 15 and 16 versions. They won't recognize EXOS 21.

For details about software support for all Extreme switch models, check out the HW/SW Support Matrix (search on X440).

Hi Alok,
Licenses will persist through the update.
BootROM will not need to be updated.
