6740 40GB administratively down

First off I am very much a novice trying to work my way thru this but running into a road block.
I am trying to connect a VDX6740T 40GB port (is licensed and assigned to the port) to a windows Server 2012 R2 with Intel XL710 40GB card. All the ports on the switch are configured the same but when attempting to use no shutdown command the switch reports the port is administratively up and then reports Chip ioctl take more than 2 sec before_lock, and then reports administratively down. It seems like i have some setting incorrecct or this config is not compatible. Any help to get this up and running is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
