We have a configuration problems with the BNT VF 10Gb Switch Module combined with the Emulex 10GbE VFA on an IBM HS22 x 2 Nodes Blade Server (IBM BladeCenter H)
The problem is we cannot make the Emulex 10GbE VFA (with 8 vNICs x 2 Nodes = 16 vNICs) Link-Up with the BNT VF 10Gb Switch Module.
-In the UEFI Network Config of the Emulex the Link is Down.
-The IBM HS22 has an ESXi v5.1 installed the State of all 16 vNICs are Link Down.
We appreciate your advice.
Thank you very much.

This is the accepted answer.Can you provide the configuration of the BNT virtual fabric switch module? Also, please check the firmware version of the Emulex VFA. I have seen the latest firmware having some issues, so you can try v 4.0.1062.0 from this link:
