Nexus 7000 Field Notice

I was looking around in my Nexus boxes today and noticed that my 48 port Rj45 line card was not showing up in the running config. The “show mod” showed it as “ok” but the interfaces were missing from the config. The model number is ‘N7K-M148GT-11′ and you need to have hardware version 1.3. This seems to be a side effect of enabling virtual port channels on the Nexus boxes.

Turns out there is a field notice and I need the latest hardware version of the cards.

Open a TAC SR and get an RMA going. I figured it would be an EPLD upgrade issue, but I guess not.

Notice the version in the output from “show mod”
