Help with a SX-FI424F 24-port in a SuperX

Greetings,

Will replacing the card solve this problem, or is this a chassis issue?

I have a SX-FI424F 24-port Gig Fiber card in a SuperX that is exhibiting strange behavior. Here is what happens...

Doing a

sh stat brief eth 2/2 on the SuperX shows  in/out packets and in/out errors... packets are as expected and errors in and out are zero

On a 6450 connect via multi mode about 6 feet away to the SuperX SX-FI424F port 2

sh stat brief eth 1/2/1    packets in/out    zero output errors and 50,000 input errors. 

The SuperX thinks out bound packets are good, bu when they arrive errors.  This occurs on every port on the SX-FI424F.

Single mode, multi mode it does not matter, same results. New optics, new patch cables. I am convinced I have a bad slot or SX-FI424F 24-port Gig Fiber card.

Has anyone observed this behavior ?  Also I configured 4 copper ports on the management card and they do not exhibit this behavior.

Port        In Packets      Out Packets   In Errors  Out Errors
1/2/1           236783           229494       55152           0

Thank you for your time,

Tom

So you've lost a packet processor.  Is a bummer but happens.
