Onboard admin w/ KVM compatible with redundant w/o KVM?

Is it possible to have a second OA in the C7000 that doesn't have the KVM option as a redundant backup to the primary that does have the KVM option as long as they have the same firmware? Is it possible to upgrade both to the latest firmware?

Hi Jonathon,

The two OA types are not interchangeable. You will need to use either 2 OAs with KVM or 2 OAs without to achieve redundancy.

I attempted to run the two simultaneously (both at the same firmware) but was unsuccessful. From what I understand, all new enclosure orders come with 1 of the newer OA with KVM.
