Can I run different types of MSM modules on one 8810 or 8806 machine?

For example, can I run MSM-48c and MSM-96 on one machine?
Can I run MSM-48c and MSM-128 on one machine?

Please answer me.

To add to the information that Sumeesh provided, there is some limited support for running mismatched MSMs temporarily to facilitate an MSM upgrade.

However, this is supported for migration only, and the switch should not be run with mismatched MSMs in a production environment.
