HP Procurve 6120XG Blade Switch Interconnects Question?

I have a question regarding how the interconnects work for both my 6120s.  Below is the output for each switch.  My question is does both ports 23, 24 need to be enabled on each 6120 for the cross-links to work?  The reason I ask is we had this switch in Bay6 replaced recently and did not make a backup of the configuration.  Because of that I received some connection errors on my SAN, which resulted in some dead paths in vmware.  Regardless any information on this would be helpful.

 

Bay6(6120XG config) - both interface ports 23 and 24 are disabled

interface 24

Bay5 (6120XG config) - both ports 23,24 are enabled and active

hostname "ProCurve 6120XG Blade Switch"
