Hi, I have a HPAJ764A -> QLE2562 card on a Linux RH5 and it only logs in the fabric (brocade 4100) if we force the speed to 2GB and it only work for few minutes and then it goes In_Sync again, can anyone help me? I think it is a driver related issue but dont know how to fix.
On the one hand, a good option would be to upgrade the HBA driver (what's the version?).
On the other, please, try the following and post the result:
- once you get the port to be ONLINE, clear the stats (portstatsclear
- can you paste the output of sfpshow
- what error do you get when setting the speed at auto or 4G?
After a while the port goes down again, here is the portlogshow:

QLogic Corp. ISP2532-based 8Gb Fibre Channel to PCI Express HBA (rev 02)
pserra, I noticed you are running the 8.03.x firmware by Q. Their current driver set is 8.05.x. Just FYI.
But beyond that, I would suggest speaking to Qlogic regarding their FC adapters.
it is scary the number of existing bugs in 8.04 and previous driver releases:
I'd recommend you to upgrade the drivers and then see if problems persist.
