Issue:
How to determine which firmware to install on the 66074 NMC is by the color of the PCB

Product line:
66074/34003640SE Network Management Card (NMC)

Environment:
All versions

Cause:
The hardware revision of the card determines which firmware package can be loaded.

Resolution:
The simplest way to determine which firmware to install on the 66074 NMC is by the color of the PCB.  The original 66074 NMC was green and the newest version of the 66074 NMC is blue. 

If the NMC cannot be removed or is located remotely the NMC firmware can be determined by accessing the NMC web interface and click on "About UPS".  If the NMC has firmware AX to GX (X being any letter from A to Z) it is the original 66074NMC.   The latest or blue board has firmware IA or above which is currently KD.  You must use the correct firmware for the NMC installed.  The UPGRADE tool used to update the firmware will not allow you to update the wrong firmware.  If you have issue updating the firmware then check the firmware on the NMC and the firmware you are uploading are compatible.
