Looking at this link seems to infer that there is some difference between the 2 physical ports.

I do not see what is is.

May be show interface might point to the issue

A second prt channel xxA is created by lacp when discrepencies are found in the original xx channel group

In addition check the version of the netapp device - Last week I had similar issues with a netapp device. The solution was a software upgrade on the netapp-filer.

Can you paste an ifconfig -a output from the netapp controller here?
