1Bay cannot see SAN fabric, other bay's can


A couple of months ago, we abrutply lost access to our SAN from one of our blades.  Any blade I stick into this particular bay cannot see the SAN fabric.  When I look at the SAN Fabrics - Server connections in virtual connect, this particular bay doesn't have an uplink port attached to it.  Would anyone have any idea why this is happening?  I have attached a screenshot of the issue. I have duplicated a profile from a working blade, to no avail.

I recently updated all the firmware in the hopes it would fix the problem.  It does not.  

The issue is with bay 4.

Please check to ports at the far end of the Fabric (A) for this server connection. I had a similar problem and found out that the fiber cable needed "reseating". Link LEDs were good on both ends, but would not login to fabric.
