    Problem with symbol error counter

    sgroel

      We have some new hardware and are running into a problem with the symbol error counter when we run 1 port in IB mode and 1 in ethernet. The symbol error counter for the IB side pegs to 65532 and does not reset as soon as the port changes mode to ethernet. I have tried 2 different drivers 4.3-1 and 4.3-3 both of which exhibit the same behavior. The device is DEL1090001019 (firmware 2.42.5000) running in a Dell C4140. OS is OL 7.5. We are also seeing this same behavior in an R730 with DEL1090001019 (firmware 2.36.5000) pm CentOS 7.4. Has anyone else run into this and know of a workaround or a way to fix it? The nodes always appear when running ibqueryerrors on the fabric when trying to find bad cables. We do have hardware running the same configuration with ethernet and IB in this configuration with no problems, it seems like it is just Dell hardware experiencing this problem.
