What happens when adding an additional OA?

A lot of our C7000's currently have a single OA and we'd like to add a second unit for redundancy. The issue we can see is that the new ones we buy will have completely different firmware versions to the currently installed one.

 

What happens in this case? Does it not join in the operation of the enclosure until the other is brought up to the same/newer version? Or does the other unit up/downgrade the new units firmware to match it?

Re: What happens when adding an additional OA?

If you insert a new OA with different firmware, the active OA reports a mismatch and provide a possibility to clone its own firmware to the new component.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
