An error for one of the Link Aggregate ports is displayed in the system health alert show output

::> system health alert show

               Node: NodeA-01
           Resource: Link Aggregate 1
           Severity: Major
    Indication Time: Mon Oct 25 11:25:03 2021
           Suppress: false
        Acknowledge: false
     Probable Cause: The cable used to connect switch "Switch01/
                     Link Aggregate 1" to the ISL port might be faulty.
                     For the port-channel, please check each individual link.
    Possible Effect: Cluster redundancy might be lost.
 Corrective Actions: 1) Check whether the cable is fully inserted into the interface port on both ends.
                     2) Reconnect the ISL port using another cable. After
                        reconnecting it, verify whether the link of the ISL
                        port is up by executing the commands per the switch
                        configuration guide or by checking whether the Link
                        status LED is on.
