This message may occur during bootup, yet after the full Cisco IOS Software image is loaded, the port adapter is recognized and functioning properly.
This usually occurs because the the boot image is at a version level which does not support the port adapter, while the full Cisco IOS image is at a version level which does support the port adapter. This does not hinder the router's performance in any way while the router is up and running the full Cisco IOS version. If the router is in boot mode, however, the port adapter will not be available.
To eliminate the bootup message, perform these steps:
Identify the port adapter by issuing the show diag command. This determines which port adapter is in the bay (slot), which is referenced by the error message.
If the error message is %PA-2-UNDEFPA: Undefined Port Adapter type 549 in bay 3, the port adapter shows up in slot 3 in the show diag output, as shown:
Dual Port FastEthernet (RJ45) Port adapter, 2 ports
Port adapter is analyzed
