Nexus 7010 and N7K-M132XP-12L

Hi,

We've tried installing a N7K-M132XP-12L blade into our Nexus 7010 , but it's reporting the following issue.

%PLATFORM-2-MOD_PWRIDPROM_SW_CARD_ID_UNKNOWN: Module 7 failed to power up. (Unknown card. Could not get software-card-id)

The Nexus is running NX-OS 5.0.(3).

I,ve checked the system messages, but doesn't seem provide a solid solution.

Error Message     PLATFORM-2-MOD_PWRIDPROM_SW_CARD_ID_UNKNOWN: Module [dec] failed to 
power up. (Unknown card. Could not get software-card-id) 

Explanation   The module cannot be powered up due to missing SWID in core-plugin for thiscard ID.

Recommended Action   Enter a 'show platform internal all module [decimal digit]' and 'show module internal all module [decimal digit]' 'show sprom module [dec] [dec]' to read module IDPROM contents to collect more information.

Are there any know issues , or compatibility problems using these XL cards rather that the N7K-M132XP-12, which is happily running in another slot on this Nexus.

Thnx

The module you are running requires a minimum software version of 5.1.
You are currently running 5.0.3 which is why the module is not
recognized.

Thnx, I thought this might be the case. The vendor delivered the wrong card by mistake ; should have been the non-XL version.
