ProCurve 2810

I am seeing a lot of these in the log.

W 12/07/10 04:32:43 FFI: port 9-Excessive CRC/alignment errors. See help.
W 12/07/10 04:34:39 FFI: port 9-Excessive CRC/alignment errors. See help.
W 12/07/10 04:38:41 FFI: port 9-Excessive CRC/alignment errors. See help.

However when I look at the port I do not see them?

This is the fault finder feature which find this statement.
It is not a good reply but try to change your fault finder configuration to be less sensitive or disable it for this particular "finder".

The configuration should be :
fault-finder bad-cable sensitivity low action warn

According to event log reference guide :
An excessive number of cyclic redundancy check (CRC) or alignment errors were reported on the specified port. Refer to the
help information for more details.

If the problem is always present :
- reboot the unit
- move the device with the same wire to another to check if the problem follow the end-device.
- connect another end-node to this port to check if this is a harware issue
If none of these works open a case with the show tech or show tech all information.
