Too many nics showing in vcenter

This may be a vmware issue but thought I'd running the question through here first.  I have numerous BL460C-Gen9's running vmware 6.5 U2.  Of the 8 network ports available on the blade, Oneview profiles assigns 6 as network ports and 2 as fiber channel.  Looking at the host config in vcenter, I should have 6 physical adapters / vmnics and 2 storage adapters /vmhbas.  This is the case for every blade but one which shows 8 physical adapters / vmnics and 2 storage adapters /vmhbas.  The 2 fiber channel adapters should not appear here.  Ideas?

Please check if the firmware and driver version are the same on working and non working Esxi for both the VMHBA and NIC's .

Use the below mention Kb article for reference .
