Cat5500: %EARL-3-BADCOLOR:Bad color 2918 read from 3074 for a dynamic entry

One of our production 5500's is constantly reporting this badcolor alarm in the log. The Ethernet blade has been replaced and moved into a new slot and this has not resolved this issue. The 3500 series switch that the 5500 is connected to does not show any of these errors in the log. Any suggestions on a path forward to get rid of these alarms?

This message does not indicate any hardware failure. The following page should help

Also I suggest that you use the error message decoder
