Answer/Solution
FIX: This issue is currently under investigation
As Workaround downgrade the firmware to 10.2.477.23 using (SPP) Version 2015.04.0 Or Reduce the uplink to 1 per Virtual connect SAN fabric or OneView Fibre Channel Uplink set.
Do this by applying the interactive mode and ONLY “upgrade” the Emulex LOM firmware back down to 10.2.477.23.
