LACP neighbor Dev ID

1. What is the significance of the LACP Neighbor  "Dev ID"  ? 

It looks like it is a combination of  priority.macaddress.

I am seeing some inconsistencies in the output of some show commands on a Cisco CBS3110G (Cisco-IBM Blade switch) runnning IOS version

12.2(53)SE . We have the switch ports configured for "channle-group x mode active". The IBM Blade servers are using the Broadcom Advanced Utility

for building the "teams".

The virutal mac address being used by some of the blade servers were changed by the server admins.
In the output of the "show lacp neighbor" command the "Dev ID" listed still shows the Mac address that was previously in use by the server nic team.

I have deleted the PO interface and rebuilt it. After being rebuilt the PO int still shows the LACP neighbor Dev ID as the previous mac address.

Is there a way to clear the Dev ID for an LACP channel ?

Would the inconsistency cause any network related issue ?

For example

Output of "Show run int g1/0/2" (1st nic in team)

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/2

switchport access vlan 218

switchport mode access

channel-group 2 mode active

Output of "Show run int g2/0/2" (2nd nic in team)

interface GigabitEthernet2/0/2

  switchport access vlan 218

  switchport mode access

  channel-group 2 mode active

Output of "Show mac address-table int po2"

R62_VBS3#sho mac address-table int po2
          Mac Address Table

Vlan    Mac Address       Type        Ports
----    -----------       --------    ----

Thanks in advance for any clarification
