Fibrechannel adapters only show up on 3 hosts - ESXi 6.0

We have 9 blades in our C7000 and only 3 of them see Fibrechannel adapters in vSphere (esxi 6.0).  This is currently just our lab environment.

The server profiles for each blade are exactly the same for all blades.  If I swap a working blade (#8) with a blade that cannot see the FC adapter (#7) #8 continues to work in another bay and #7 does not.  I'm baffled as to why 3 hosts show the Emulex adapter in vSphere and all other hosts will not no matter what I try.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 We are currently only using a single Flex-10 module in bay1 and a single 4Gb FC module in bay3.
