Installed new device
"The chassis has no compatible version"
What follows is an enhanced partial extract from firmware 6.02.01.0006 release notes, INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION NOTES section:Installing a New DFE
When installing a new DFE type to an existing system, the system's
operating firmware image needs to be compatible with the new DFE. It is
recommended that the system be upgraded prior to installing the new DFE.
If the system isn't upgraded prior to the installation, the new DFE will
not complete initialization and join the rest of the chassis. It will
remain in a halted state until the running chassis is upgraded to a
compatible firmware version.
Minimum Firmware Image Required:
4H4203-72 3.10.03 (first Gold release)
4H4282-49 3.10.03 (first Gold release)
4H4283-49 3.10.03 (first Gold release)
7G4270-12 1.07.19 (first Platinum release)
7GR4202-30 5.36.03 (first Diamond release)
7GR4270-12 5.36.03 (first Diamond release)
7GR4280-19 5.36.03 (first Diamond release)
7H4382-49 1.07.19 (first Platinum release)
7KR4290-02 5.36.03 (first Diamond release)
If a new DFE is inserted into the system, the new DFE will inherit all
system parameters and all firmware files stored on each module in the
system. Any firmware files stored on the new device, which are not common
to the system, will be automatically removed. If the new DFE does not have
a copy of the current system's boot image, it will automatically be
upgraded and then the module will re-initialize and join the system.
NOTE: If the new DFE requires a newer firmware image than the image
running in the chassis, the master module MUST be upgraded to the newer
firmware before inserting the new DFE. If the system isn't upgraded prior
to the installation, the new DFE will not complete initialization and join
the rest of the chassis. It will remain in a halted state until the
running chassis is upgraded to a compatible firmware version.[/code]For the full disclosure statement, consult the latest release notes for the 7xxxxx-xx (Platinum/Diamond) or the 4xxxxx-xx (Gold) line, as appropriate.
When a DFE cannot initialize because the chassis is not running a compatible firmware version, the following message is displayed every 20 seconds in a serial management session to the switch in question: The chassis has no compatible version of xx.xx.xx to run on this module.[/code] ...where "xx.xx.xx" represents the version of firmware that the chassis is running.
There are four general scenarios that could be used to introduce a new DFE switch (7G4202-30 with firmware 1.07.23, for example) into a chassis of DFE switches (7H4382-49s with firmware 1.07.19, for example):
- Install the new DFE switch into the chassis containing operational DFE switches.[list]
