Description (partial)

Removing GBIC from leaf node uplink ports/spine node ports generates the "Transceiver has been removed" syslog event on unused ports on the spine node and some leaf nodes.

%LOG_LOCAL0-6-SYSTEM_MSG [E4210003][transceiver-removed][info][sys/phys-[eth2/27]/phys/fcot] Transceiver has been removed
%LOG_LOCAL0-6-SYSTEM_MSG [E4210003][transceiver-removed][info][sys/phys-[eth4/25]/phys/fcot] Transceiver has been removed

The reason is that when GBIC is removed, it triggers these events internally due to using the wrong ethpmFcot managed object logic. The only affect the internal managed object class update behavior. You can safely ignore the events.

This issue occurs with a 4.2 release when you remove GBIC from leaf node uplink ports/spine node ports.
