Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for the operator system $A_1X=C_1$, $XA_2=C_2$, $A_3XA^*_3=C_3$, and $A_4XA^*_4=C_4$ to have a common positive solution, where $A_i$'s and $C_i$'s are adjointable operators on Hilbert $C^*$-modules. This corrects a published result by removing some gaps in its proof. Finally, a technical example is given to show that the proposed investigation in the setting of Hilbert $C^*$-modules is different from that of Hilbert spaces.
