7800 FCIP configuration error "Failed to init in time"

I have a problem and dont know where else to look I am hoping It can be answered in this forum , or guidence in the right direction 

I have two 7800 switches configured for FCIP running on a 10 MB bandwith 

all the config steps have been followed and I can ping the switches and do a traceroute as well , 

the moment I enable the ge0 and VEX port 16 on both switches , I can see it is trying to send the info to the peer switch but after aboout  2 - 3 minutes the error message "Failed to init in time"  appears next to the vex port 16 and it disables .

\Can someone direct me in the right direction?  and where to look at

Hello

 

 

This may occur when attempting to connect two switches when using fiber channel routing to keep the fabrics separate and prevent them from merging.  Both switches will have an Integrated License, and both switches may have FCIP functionality. 

 

The ports at both ends have been configured as EX/VEX ports. Only one port may be configured as a VE/VEX port. The other port must be configured as a regular E/VE port.

 

 

Thanks

Thanks Chetan

I will try and redo and change 1 port to be only E/VE port and see what it does

will keep you posted
