BL45p and GbE2 Interconnect Switch

I have just installed 2 BL45p Blade server with 2 GbE2 Interconnect Switches, but something is not working right. As soon as i plug the Blade System on my LAN it starts to broadcasts packets and it floats my network. Anyone knows what i am doing wrong or how to fix this issue? Thanks in advanced.

Any other blades in the enclosure? How have you connected uplinks from gbe2? If uplinks are connected, how many and have configure trunks?

What would happen if you pull both switch out and reset them, after configure one and see what happened?

O/S Installed ?
do safe mode with networking

Most likely your GbE2 switches have spanning tree protocol enabled and you have created a loopback situation. Disable STP and then connect and see what happens.
