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

Last updated on JUNE 27, 2018

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 6/06 U2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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.

# fmdump -eV|grep zio_offset|sort -u
       zio_offset = 0x11bfffdf600
       zio_offset = 0x11bfffd8800
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffd2200
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffd6000
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffd7600
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffd8400
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffd9000
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffd9a00
       zio_offset = 0xe2fffda000
