  • Fabric Extender (FEX)
  • Cisco Nexus 5000 switch


  • Storage reports following message on an hourly level:

vifmgr.cluscheck.crcerrors: Port on node is reporting a high number of observed hardware errors, possibly CRC errors.

  • This is reflected in the output of the IFSTAT command as well:

Cluster::> system node run -node <node name> -command ifstat
