I have the following scenario, Cisco UCS chassis with 2 Blade B440 placed in slot 5 and 7.
The blade in slot 5 is taking some time but the VIFs get pinned (FI Uplink) after approx 3 min.
as for the server in slot 7 the VIFs using the adapter 2 remains unpinned and even sometimes the "Link State" becomes "Unknown" and after a few seconds it changes to "up" but the "FI Uplink" always remaining unpinned.
Apparently the problem only occurs between the adapter 2 and FI-B
After checking the "IO module 2", I found that the Backplane Port 2/29 is in a failure status.
I changed the server slot from slot 7 to slot 1 and apparently everything was fine.
do you have any suggestions?
