Hi Timur,

 

They probably do not have the OA/Mgmt network segregated from production.  Best practice is to put these on different segments (and the errors will go away).  Note that the OA is 100Mbps.

 

Hope this helps,

Any other comments or suggestions? Have you seen this error??

I've seen this issue even with the latest firmware (3.31). I assume this is not related to the firmware.

I still have this problem on OA firmware rev 3.60. It happens infrequently.

 

Our OAs are on a different subnet than our production data network.

This night I saw it in version 3.71.
