I have an IBM blade center with 13 HS22 (mix of 4Gb & 8Gb Qlogic HBAs) servers and duel 4Gb brocade fiber SAN switch. I am replacing both brocade SAN switch with QLogic 8Gb 20 Ports, Intelligent Pass-thru Module(44X1905). After replacing the switch, all the internal ports status is showing "Downed". How can i activate these ports?
