APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the PCIe2 2-port 10GbE SR Adapter (a21910071410d003)
    is disabled/enabled it also needs to reset the physical
    link so that switch fabric is aware of the change and can
    clear its arp table of entries associated with the port.
    
    This can cause an outage in an VIOS environment where
    adapter disable/enable is used to update switch fabric
    which adapter is bridging traffic.
    

Local fix

  • If this is a VIOS environment APAR IV59795 may restore
    correct function.
    

Problem summary

  • When the PCIe2 2-port 10GbE SR Adapter (a21910071410d003)
    is disabled/enabled it does not perform link reset cycle.
    This can cause an outage in an VIOS environment where
    adapter disable/enable is used to update switch fabric
    which adapter is bridging traffic.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Driver is fixed to bring down link when adapter is disabled.
    

Temporary fix
