Strange Failover Issue

I have two OA's, using firmware 2.12 and two VC enet modules using firmware 1.22 (in bays one and two).

If I set my OA1 as the active OA, the VC modules complain with 'one or more of a domain's subsystems are not properly operating, causing a slgith impact to domain functions'. Making OA2 active again resolves all alerts.

If OA1 is left as the active OA, the blades in the enclosure will loose their network connectivity after a while.

Any ideas on how to resolve this? I'd like to get my OA's redundant again.

Thanks,
Julian.

Have you tried to upgrade the firmware on both OA.

Yes, both OA's are running the same version of firmware and flash without problems.

This is on a c7000 enclosure, under 1 year in age, so the warranty is good.

I'm think of swapping the OA's around, so OA in bay one is placed in to bay 2 etc, to see if the problem reverses.
