R500 (200.7 latest firmware) and R320 (200.8 latest) in one network, what will happen?

So will all devices run the latest common supported firmware (200.7)? Or each will run their own latest version? I have a couple of R500s and found a R320 at a good price, so was wondering what will happen if I add it to the network.

You cannot run multiple versions of firmware in a single Unleashed network, all APs need to run the same version of firmware.

R320 will happily run 200.7. If you have an AP that has shipped with a newer version, then I'd recommend manually down-grading it prior to joining it to your Unleashed network.

Got it, so basically - the R500s will stay at 200.7 forever, as they are EoL, and the R320 will be at 200.7 too if I want to run them on the same network, and if I ever replace the R500s with something newer - I can upgrade the firmware.
