portDisableReason: Fabric Login failed zero/duplicate AL_PA

Hi,

 

I am configuring an HP C7000 with Brocade B-series 8/24c SAN switch to "talk" with a Brocade 300 switch

 

I setup the module in the AG mode and 2 out of the 3 host blades have been mapped correctly. The 3rd one though has port disabled "portDisableReason: Fabric Login failed zero/duplicate AL_PA"

 

All host blades are identical / used QLOGIC HBA

 

Any help/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated 

 

Here are some details:
