IV69920: PCIE2 2-PORT 10GBE SR ADAPTER DOES NOT RESET LINK APPLIES TO AIX 7100-03
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
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.
If this is a VIOS environment APAR IV59795 may restore correct function.

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