I recently put some of these in the other week and have the same error messages. All I could find was a reference to use the Onboard Administrator to resolve the issue. Since I do not manage the server aspect of these, the ports are still in that state.

If the Onboard Administrator detects a physical problem between the blade server and the switch, the

Onboard Administrator changes these interfaces to the EKEY error-disabled state. You must use the Onboard

Administrator to find the root cause of the problem, and to recover from the error-disabled state. See the

HP BladeSystem documentation at http://www.hp.com/go/bladesystem/documentation for more
