Netgear GSM7328FS and AX743 module
I have a new setup of Netgear Core switches consisting of 2 x GSM7328S and 2 x GSM7328FS, all stacked via AX742 module at the back
I have purchased 2 x AX743 module which netgear advises it's compatible.
I have 1 of each plugged into my GSM7328FS at the front module bays (I haven't got 10gbe equipment to test yet) but if going by the indicator lights reference by the pdf manual the card is not detected. (Module Light (M1 or M2) should be ON solid Green...
I have attached screenshots of the web interface with the status:
Now I think that should display a picture of a module (physically it's attached to Module Bay 1 on both, and the M1 light is off - which according to the manual no module is inserted)
and if you look into the Port list, it shows AX741 modules being inserted to the relevant slot (but not an AX743 - so it is sensing a module insertion)
port slot numbers.JPG
Now my only concern is the module blanking plate on the GSM7328FS switch says compatible with AX741, AX742 but no mention of AX743..which why I checked with Netgear (it also shoe the AX743 as an option on the website for that model)
The firmware is 22.214.171.124 i might try an update later to see if it makes a difference.
Anyone come across this?
PS tried Module Bay 2, same thing
