When using a Virtual Connect (VC) domain running Virtual Connect Firmware Version 4.60 or 4.61, following a reset, reboot or power-cycle of a server blade or VC Module, the Stacking Link(s) between VC Modules either within a single enclosure or across multiple enclosures may be lost and/or Uplink(s) may not form a LACP Group, resulting in a network outage. Additionally, latency may be seen in FCoE Traffic.

This occurs due to an issue found in the control traffic handler within Virtual Connect Modules.
