Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when the system cannot read identification information from the physical layer (PHY) of a network interface. This might be caused by a software bug or hung hardware, and the link might not come up.

Corrective Action

If the link does not come up, power-cycle (not just reboot) the system. If the link still does not come up, replace the motherboard or network interface card, depending on the location of the interface.

Syslog Message

Parameters

ifName (STRING): Name of the network interface, for example, "e8a".
