Re: Errors every 30 minutes

I cleared the stats with and now this is the output.  Can I remove a gbic from a port not in use and put it in port 18?  And can I do this with the system up and running?  This particular has one switch downstream through an isl and one upstream but I don't think it is working today.

Hi jennifer

Yes you can remove an SPF from an used port on your switch and swap it over , if you have correctly setup up dual pathing and you have two seperate fabrics , this will be a non-distruptive change.

If the server is AIX, pls do it carefully, you may have to do a rmdev and cfgmgr for the same.
