c7000 - mix of different OA Hardware Revisions possible?

Hello,

currently we got a 456204-B21 Open Administrator (HW Revision "B2") in our productive c7000. Next to Virtual Connect.
We also got a spare 407296-001 Open Administrator in one of our retired c7000.

Now I wanted to ask if it's possible to mix those 2 OAs in the remaining c7000 to get OA redundancy ... ?
And if yes - is there something to watch after? Do we need to upgrade Firmware of the old OA first? Or do we need to RESET it so that no wrong Settings are imported into running c7000?

Thank you, bye from Austria

Hi @Patrick Neuner,

As per your query I found below information which can be helpful.

"The part number for HP Onboard Administrator is displayed as part number 407296-001 on the HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure Onboard Administrator Command Line or Web Interface Information page; however, this is incorrect. The correct part number is 412142-B21.

A sticker located on the top of the HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure contains the correct part number."

For more information on this please check the below link:

For further details on mixing of 2 OA's please reach out HPE support Team:
