mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss 430 Excessive Ethernet transmit errors

In some cases this error can be the result of a duplex mismatch between the McDATA and Cisco switches and may result in ethernet performance issues, intermittent connectivity or loss of communication between the McDATA and any management application. This can also generate excessive email traffic if error reporting is enabled.
