I have a SAN Switch Brocade 300. Actually i have a tool that is allowing us monitoring the different ports of this SAN (Whatsup Gold). Recently we had a physical problem with a transceiver one of them. We check the SAN Switch ports using porterrshow command and we found that existed 2 columns that we told us the error. ENC IN and ENC OUT
For monitoring this port we found two counters taht called swFCPortRxEncInFrs and swFCPortRxEncOutFrs.
Actually we don't have a way to re-create this error.
So my question is: Is possible recreate this physical error using a command via command line?
Thanks in advance for your help

I am not aware of CLI to force an encoding inside or outside error, easiest is possible to re-use the sfp or cable which was was part of the original error. Also, if you are running 8GB, you could set an incorrect fillword on a port running at 8GB (portcfgfill) which probably will generate physical errors on that link once the traffic reach a certain level.
