iLO "network degraded" warning


I've got on several identical DL380 Gen8 Servers - all identical configured with same firmware and OS. On all servers are just 2 of the 4 1-Gbit Ports (onboard NIC) physically connected. Most of the servers show in iLO status "unknown" which is fine - but I've got 4 servers which show on one or both of the unconnected ports "link down". Therefore I get an error message in OneView which throws errors in our monitoring systems. 

My collegues veryfied that at the OS level the not connected links are configured as "down" - as all the other servers too which don't throw that "link down" errors. I cannot discover any differences between the servers, but 4 of them behave differently in this point. 

Any ideas on that?

What version? ILO? BIOS?

Hope this helps!
