AIX 6.1 on DCX showing as G-Port

Have a AIX 6.1 with 4Gig HBA that was migrated off of an older switch to a DCX running 6.4.0d.  Rebooted the system, changed the auto neg,  removed the cabling and reconnected to let the HBA relogin.  Still stuck in a G-Port status.  Suspect that it may be a driver problem on the HBAs.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

use the portfgxxx commang n order to change Port Topology.

bevore, unplag the cable and reset the port by default

is probable the error is cause by HBA driver, but this can be caused due a wrong port config.

Actions so far have not worked.  Trying to find the latest drive for the FC5735, currently at level 111304, but not having much sucess.  more information on the switch that the system was moved from was a IBM 2498-B40 running FOS 6.1.1a. Are these two levels of FoS compatable?
