When a 40G interface is configured "bundle disabled" the optic module in use on the interface will be declared as an "Unsupported optic" module even though the optic module is F5 branded.


This is a cosmetic problem. The interface is able to function as intended.


Using unbundled 40GbE optics.


No workaround, problem is cosmetic.

Fix Information

The fix for the defect results in no longer declaring an otherwise supported optics module as unsupported when bundling is configured disabled on the interface.
