All test modules in a chassis MUST have a valid SW maintenance license
In Xena Release 84 (Val-84) an important change was implemented in the ChassisUpgrader that causes it to check the status of the software maintenance license for all test modules in the chassis and only perform the upgrade if all test modules in the chassis have a valid software maintenance license.
This was implemented to avoid conflicts some customers had experienced where SW versions in modules and chassis did not match.
This means when you buy a new module and want to install it in an existing XenaBay chassis together with other modules, all modules in that chassis must have a valid software maintenance license to ensure any software updates required for the new module can be installed.
Please contact Xena support at https://support.xenanetworks.com/ or [email protected] if you experience that a module with a valid software maintenance license is rejected by the ChassisUpgrader.
Please note that the “Defined Test Chassis” list will be cleared first time you open the ChassisUpgrader.
Z10cc Odin not supported by Val-85
Please observe that Z10cc Odin will not link up at 10G if Val-85 is installed. We therefore recommend that you do not install Val-85 on Z10cc Odin.
Windows 7 no longer supported:
In Val-85, the Xena Windows applications like XenaManager no longer support legacy versions of Microsoft Windows. Using Val-85 Xena software will require Windows version 8 or higher. As a consequence, the support for legacy plugins will also be obsoleted.
