Port adapter is disabled unsuitable deactivated powered off
This is due to the new and higher speed Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) midplane on a VXR chassis requiring an upgrade to the port adapter's arbiter Erasable Programmable Logic Device (EPLD). Certain port adapters will not function properly in a VXR chassis unless this upgrade is performed.
To identify the port adapter's hardware revision, issue the show diag command. This example shows the port adapter in slot1:
