Hello Jay,

I've used the sofware advisor tool in the hope of finding a suitable release for your device.

it provided the following feedback

Two or more selected items are incompatible. Selected item [PA-A3-8T1IMA=] is incompatible with: [NPE-200=-TS]. Please change one or more items.

So it looks like there is an hardware incompatibility

Hope to help

Hello Jay,

the incompatibility declared from the tool was with the NPE-200 not with the specified I/O controller.

for the tool with a C7206 chassis this I/O controller cannot be installed.

Be aware that both NPE-200 and C7206 chassis are end of sale since 2004 or before.

You may have taken the card from a C7206VXR chassis with NPE 400 or better processor.

you can check this using

sh c7200

Hope to help
