Re: Transmit timeout

Hi,

is this a one time error? It says it could not deliver data on time.
The stats for that nic look ok.

Re: Transmit timeout

Hi all
I have some analysis from HP Belgium regarding thi problem.

The DE60x ethernet driver (ee.mod) has still an old version 1.21 on which this troule has been found. The solution is to install a newer version 1.23.

The issue can be common on all cluster if this patch TCRPAT00016600540 is not installed. So a part of the patch kit 3 is not installed. To avoid this issue or PK3 must be installed completely or PK5 must be installed.

So the reason is becauses of some patches.
