Found when moving from two separate IB Fabrics (both Fabric Interconnects configured as OpenSM primary - not meshed) to moving to meshed IB Fabric (OpenSM primary and Standby)   Following instructions to set subnet manager faslse (#set system is-subnet-manager false), and then running "guid2lid" to zero out the lid table, resulted in one or both Fabric Interconnects staying in "Discover" state.
