HP Blade C7000 - Stacking Redundancy Error Bay5 and Bay6

Hi all,

 

I'm having the following:

Blade C7000

HP VC 4.31

Bay1. VC Flex-10 Enet Module

Bay2. VC Flex-10 Enet Module

Bay5.VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module

Bay6.VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port Module

 

Stacking Links has a Warning about Redundancy Status.

Current Link state.

10 Gb    enc0:Bay1:PortX7    enc0:Bay2:PortX7
10 Gb    enc0:Bay1:PortX8    enc0:Bay5:PortX8
10 Gb    enc0:Bay2:PortX8    enc0:Bay6:PortX8

 

As shown, there's no link between Bay5 and Bay6. Based on documentation, there should already be an Internal link between bay5 and bay6. Why doesn't they show up ?

 

THere's note below the connection.

NOTE:
Port X7 and X8 may connect to the internal link between horizontally-adjacent HP VC Flex-10 Enet and HP VC FlexFabric 10Gb/24-Port modules.
Ports X11, X12, X13, and X14 connect to the internal link between horizontally-adjacent HP VC Flex-10/10D Modules.
Ports X9 and X10 connect to the internal link between horizontally-adjacent HP VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module.

 

Logs shows:

Domain state NO_COMM : Stacking Links are not fully connected, Previous: Domain state NO_REDUNDANCY, Cause: Stacking Connectivity Error: enc0:iobay6 does not have a stacking path to enc0:iobay5

Domain state NO_REDUNDANCY : Stacking Links are not redundant, Previous: Domain state NO_COMM, Cause: Stacking Redundancy Error: if enc0:iobay1 is removed, then enc0:iobay6 does not have a stacking path to enc0:iobay5

 

Question:

1. Where else can I find cause of missing link between bay5 and 6 ?

2. Can I manually run cable on port X7 between 5 and 6 ? I don't feel this would be necessary, since I may add couple more module that will need to link bay5 and 6 out.

 

Thank you!
