Connection issues with Cisco switch after changing NIC card

We have a Cisco Catalyst 3650X switch.

We replaced a NIC card on one of our servers and now we cannot get connected to the switch.

I see that there is an old MAC address associated with the port. I've tried deleting the dynamic port setting on the switch following commands from here: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/configuration/guide/cli/CLIConfigurationGuide/MACAddress.html#wp1129904

I've also, shutdown and then restarted the port (int gi0/9, shut, no shut) but this did not help.

We are getting lights on the switch and NIC card.

Your suggestions would be appreciated.

The problem was with the network adapter. Installed a new network adapter and it is working fine. There were no settings that needed to be changed on the switch.
