Issue

  • Event logs reports the following errors

Example:

4/18/2019 11:35:16  FAS2620_0125     ALERT         vifmgr.cluscheck.crcerrors: Port e0c on node FAS2620_0125 is reporting a high number of observed hardware errors, possibly CRC errors.
 4/18/2019 10:31:05  FAS2620_0126     ALERT         vifmgr.cluscheck.crcerrors: Port e0c on node FAS2620_0126 is reporting a high number of observed hardware errors, possibly CRC errors.
 4/18/2019 10:30:16  FAS2620_0125     ALERT         vifmgr.cluscheck.crcerrors: Port e0c on node FAS2620_0125 is reporting a high number of observed hardware errors, possibly CRC errors.
 4/18/2019 09:26:05  FAS2620_0126     ALERT         vifmgr.cluscheck.crcerrors: Port e0c on node FAS2620_0126 is reporting a high number of observed hardware errors, possibly CRC errors.

  • The"ifstat -a"shows high Transmit-Total errors counter
