Sun Fire[TM] V240 bge interface has high error rate at Cisco Catalyst WS-C4006 (Doc ID 1010567.1)

Last updated on MAY 09, 2018

Applies to:

Sun Fire V210 Server - Version All Versions and later

All Platforms

Symptoms

A link between a Sun Fire [TM] V240 with a bge interface and a Cisco Catalyst 
WS-C4006 is not established well as long as the ports
- are left in default configuration or
- are set to 1Gb/s full-duplex forced (autonegotiation off).

The link shows poor performance due to high input packet errors at the bge
interface.
