Unable to apply System Profile that has PCIe card in the FX chassis

The OS deployment fails on a target server if the source server has PCIe card information when using an FX chassis. The System profiles on the source server have different fc.chassislot ID than the one on the target server. OMIVV tries to deploy the same fc.chassislot ID on the target server but fails. The System profiles searches for exact instance( FQDD) while applying the profile, which works successfully on rack servers (identical), but may have few restrictions in modular servers. For example, in FC640, the System profiles that are created from one modular server cannot be applied on other modular servers in the same FX chassis because of NIC level restrictions.

Version Affected: 4.1 and later.

Resolution: System profile that is taken from an FC640 server in slot 1 of a FX2s chassis can only be applied on another FC640 server residing in the slot 1 of another FX2s chassis.
