@RobH can you lease check network switch settings again for me. all 3 servers are failing on the network configuration settings step. see message below. Thanks.

So in checking the switch config, I see the following:
ge-1/0/2 up up restbase2007
default-switch private1-b-codfw 2018
ae1.0* ae2.0* ge-1/0/2.0*
so the port for restbase2007 is up and active, and in the private vlan.
