Brocade switch port going offline after server reboot

1 Linux host ( physical running on P series hardware ) was rebooted as it was suffering dead path issue ( host WWPN not logged in ) to refresh its HBAs . After the server reboot the portto which it was connected went offline 

 

Brocade : 8510 Director 

 

Firmware :  FOS      v8.1.2a 

 

portName: slot1 port29
portHealth: OFFLINE

Authentication: None
portDisableReason: Switch not ready for F or L ports
portCFlags: 0x0
portFlags: 0x4031 PRESENT U_PORT DISABLED LED LOGIHELD
LocalSwcFlags: 0x0
portType: 24.0
portState: 2 Offline
Protocol: FC
portPhys: 5 No_Sync portScn: 2 Offline
port generation number: 40
state transition count: 8

 

Is there any kind of troubleshooting possible without rebooting the switch ?

 

Regards
