There's not enough information provided to begin to guess.  What was the order you powered down/up fabric devices?  Which version are you running?  Can APIC see the Switches via LLDP?  How many controllers?  

Robert

I shuttdown the apic from the GUI and gracefully. Then I power off the switches.

Apic version is 5.0

Show lldp command shows nothing. I tested it using 1 apic alone and with apic cluster.

From the APIC CLI run:
acidiag run lldptool in eth2-1

acidiag run lldptool in eth2-2

Agent instance for device not found 7f

Use ifconfig, and find out the interfaces of the APIC used for fabric uplinks.  Then repeat the command above for them.
