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

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...
