Well it means, there is no link to the physical switch, which could be:

1. no cable
2. faulty cable
3. port disabled
4. mis-match speed
5. mis-match duplex settings
6. not negotiating at the correct speed
7. faulty nics
8. fault ports
9. LACP not setup correcly.
10, static trunks not setup...

The only way it could be plugged into a physical port is if your switchport was disabled/non-configured.
