It was 100% of the time with one model of blade server in the chassis, 
and never with another (older) model.  Dell was never able to get it 
straightened out.  They wanted us to do things that had significant 
downtime and risk, and we couldn't do it on a production chassis, so we 
simply stopped using the more modern blades.

I should add that the same switch lost all of its settings and was 
replaced during a system shutdown/restart.  It may have been a defective 
switch.  Being a production system my ability to troubleshoot is 
limited, so I just stuck in a replacement we had on hand for such
