EqualLogic PS4000 SAN trunk to Procurve 2910al

Hi, I have configured a trunk between our EqualLogic PS4000 and switch, but I am seeing multiple and constant errors on the switch ports connected to the equallogic, that are seriously effecting performance:

        Excessive CRC/Alignment errors and Excessive jabbering/fragmentation

 

I have found several posts on configuring procurve trunks to work with EqualLogic SANS but no diffinative answer.

Spanning Tree is globally disabled on the switch:

     show spanning-tree

             STP Enabled: No

 

Apart from ports 1-2 that are used for Management, all ports are available for use by the iSCSI network, connecting the EqualLogic to the Servers  via the 2910al.

 

Can nayone see anything obviously wrong with my switch configuration below.

Re: EqualLogic PS4000 SAN trunk to Procurve 2910al

The firmware on the EqualLogic PS4000 was the main cause of this problem.

Upgrading from v5.0.7 to v5.0.8 stopped all of the errors on the switch.

I was then also able to enable spanning-tree on the switch, without any problems.
