    'State: Initializing' but works


      Hi all,


      I am linking 2 identical nodes with 2 IB cables (2 ports are in different subnet). I found the port 2 state is in 'Initializing' (till yesterday, both port status were Active).

      Subnet manager is working. I swapped the cables but the port 2 status did not change.

      Further strange things is that both ports are (probably) working normally, because two nodes can communicate through both pairs of ports.

      Does anyone know what is happening?
