TitleDiagnostics module for 8900 series I/O modules is not installed
Symptoms
After upgrading a BlackDiamond 8806 or 8810 chassis to EXOS 16.2 or higher, the following message is logged on boot:
 
<Info:HAL.Card.BD8900DiagXmodMiss> MSM-A: The diagnostics xmod for 8900-series I/O modules is not installed. Please download and install the 8900-series I/O module diagnostics xmod before running diagnostics on 8900-series I/O modules.

When attempting to run diagnostics on an 8900 series I/O module, the following error will be seen:
 
* BD-8810.6 # run diagnostics extended slot 4

Running Diagnostics will disrupt network traffic.
Are you sure you want to continue? (y/N) Yes

The diagnostics xmod for 8900-series I/O modules is not installed.  Please download and install the 8900-series I/O module diagnostics xmod before running diagnostics on Slot-4.
Environment
  • BlackDiamond 8806 or 8810 chassis
  • 8900 series I/O modules
  • EXOS 16.2 or higher
Cause
Starting in EXOS 16.2, the hardware diagnostics for the 8900 series I/O modules was removed from the base EXOS image due to filesize limitations. 
Resolution
If diagnostics are needed for 8900 series I/O modules, download and install the bd8800-16.2.xx.yy-8900diags.xmod file. Otherwise, the error can be ignored with no negative impact.
Additional notes
Diagnostics for the 8900 series MSMs, as well as all other I/O modules are included in the base EXOS image and do not require the xmod.
