In vsphere, I see i have some hosts have vhba1 and vhba2

 

but some other hosts shows vhba3 and vhba4

 

All the hosts are using the same service profiles and have 2 vhba per host

 

why is the number not the same ?

Is a known problem; are the blades and I/O adaptor identical ?

see eg.

yes it identical. both blades are the same, same hardware. When i reinstall esxi 5.5, vmhba defaults to vmhba3 and vmhba4

 

but my other host is at vmhba1 and vmhba2

 

why is that? This is causing a problem with me applying host profiles
