VC Enet Module OA Communication Status Failed after Firmware Upgrade

Has anyone run into an issue where you have lets say...


A c7000 Blade Enclosure with 4 VC Modules properly stacked... before the upgrade, everything looks "good", but after the firmware update (or during) they modules in bays 5/6 lose their connection to the OA some how.


Current Dilemma:


c7000 w/:

1: 1/10Gb VC Enet Module   -   2: 1/10Gb VC Enet Module

3: Cisco MDS 9124e   -  4: Cisco MDS 9124e

5: 1/10Gb-F VC Enet Module   -   6: 1/10Gb-F VC Enet Module

7: Empty   -   8: Empty


Was running v3.30 firmware and everything was a-ok.

Upgraded to v3.60 and now my CX4 cables on X1 between 1/5 and 2/6 are not being recognized, and VCM is reporting no communications with the OA.


When I look at the modules in the Onboard Administrator, their IP addresses are blank.


I've reseated the modules, restarted the OA's.


I have another identical enclosure that is running 3.30 and is working perfectly.



Any thoughts?
