link timeout messages can mean there is buffer credit problem. if an HBA/target is attached to the port, it may not be returning credits in a timely manner. check to make sure driver/firmware revisions are up to date.if a link timeout occurs on an E_Port, there may be a misconfiguration of fabric parameters on one or more switches in the fabric. extended fabrics can cause this if long distance parameters are incorrectly set.
