This message occurs when a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) transceiver (phy) attached to a SAS host bus adapter (HBA) is disabled due to one of the following reasons: exceeded loss of double word synchronization error threshold; exceeded running disparity error threshold; exceeded invalid double word error threshold; exceeded phy reset problem threshold; exceeded broadcast change threshold.
- Corrective Action
If the HBA is in use, check the cabling. If it is connected to the disk shelves, check the seating of the IOM (I/O module) cards. If that does not fix the problem, contact NetApp technical support.
