Re: Port Fault

I think you'll need to replace the SFP if it's truly an LED fault.

Re: Port Fault

The most likely reason that you are having this port fault is the massive number of interrupts that are occurring on this port. I don't recall the details, but for example if X interrupts are recieved while the port is already in an interrupt handling routine the port will fault. I don't recall the value of X, but that is really not important. What you need to do is to determine what is causing all the interrupts. I know that if the HBA connected to the port is sending unformatted light this will cause massive ammounts of interrupts on a port. Oh, and to answer your question, disable the port and re-enable it to clear the port fault.

Re: Port Fault

Many thanks for the reples. There was a host connected to that port - but it was not powered up yet. I have removed the fault port by replacing the SFP.Many Thanks.
