CX5 25G cards not linking up with Cisco ACI randomly -->CX5 cards with firmware 16.33.1048
The issue is ports are getting in [close port state ] and not releasing even after reboot/ even after shut and no shut on the switch ports. Also - other command like Mlxlink -d -a DN/ Mlxlink -d -a UP and OS ifup /ifdown does not down/up the interface. Its stuck at CLOSE PORT start.
What does [STATE - CLOSE PORT] mean ? And how can we get out of this state?
