Qlogic QLE2562 PCIe FC card firmware bug can cause data corruption resulting in ZFS checksum errors (Doc ID 1529915.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ZFS checksum errors occur on every reboot of a server.
When this issue is encountered ZFS checksum errors noted in FMA may span multiple LUNs and different offsets as shown below (zio_offset).
This issue will occur where the following hardware is installed: QLogic QLE2562 PCI3.0 Fibre Channel card AND where there are LUNs > 2TB. Until now, this issue has only been seen on IBM x3850 servers with Bios 1.73 or higher. Booting with a Linux kernel triggers the same corruption.
