Cisco UCS error: will_boot_fault sensor failure asserted

After replacing a faulty UCS blade the following error presented itself after inserting the new blade into chassis:  will_boot_fault sensor failure asserted
Troubleshooting:
Ran the following –
Tried to run the board controller activation
# scope server
# scope boardcontroller
# show version
Showed version 13 (2.2.3d)
# show image
Did not display version 13 but latest was version 8 (2.2.1d)
# activate firmware .0 force
# commit-buffer
Received an error message that commit cannot proceed.
Solution:
The problem turned out to be the new blade had a newer version of firmware installed that what I had loaded in UCS manager. 
To fix this upload the latest firmware version ( in our case 2.2.3d).
Verify the new version is available by running show image under scope for chassis/server/boardcontroller.
