Issues configuring IRF on 2x FlexFabric 5940's

I have followed configuration examples I have seen for IRF trying to configure IRF for 2x HPE FlexFabrix 5940's. This includes reseting the configuration of both devices before beginning.

I get the following error and I can't find any information about it:
>>

[SHSW-CORE-1]%Apr  6 06:25:38:602 2017 SHSW-CORE-1 IFNET/3/PHY_UPDOWN: Physical state on the interface FortyGigE1/0/2 changed to up.

The Vxlan mode configurations should be the same on devices in one IRF.Please check them on the neighbor device connected to IRF-port 2

Any assistance would be appreciated.

What examples exactly? did you followed tasks list reported on the HPE FlexFabric 5940 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide?

Could you provide (sanitized) relevant (switch)configurations/(port)statues (as example: display irf, display irf topology, display irf link, display irf configuration, display version, and so on...) related to your two units?

Can you describe physical links (IRF Port 1 on Member 1 to IRF Port 2 on Member 2 and IRF Port 2 on Member 1 to IRF Port 1 to Member 2)? Cables used? QSFP+ Transceivers o DAC Cables?
