Hi all,
I have an Aruba 5412R zl2 with a mix of v2 and v3 modules installed (one of the v3 modules I needed was not released at the time). I am attempting to replace 2 x J9548A v2 modules with J9990A v3 modules but I am receiving an error stating their is a module\configuration mismatch when the new module is inserted. I have tried rebooting the switch as advised when changing modules types but still no joy. I have re-inserted the old module for the time being but I am clearly missing a trick when swapping modules with different part numbers.
