It is possible that the sprom

It is possible that the sprom for these adapters got corrupted when the outage happened, I have seen this before. In this case, cisco TAC are the only ones that can help you reprogram these adapters as they need to load a plugin that can only be configured with an internal key. In case the adapters can't get reprogram TAC can also help you with the RMA if the server is under warranty or contract.
