What do these Token Ring errors mean?
Posted on 1997-05-21
I have been using RedHat 3.03 with token ring patches to the 1.2.13 kernel for several
months with minimal problems. I have recently received some errors
and hoped someone might be able to tell me what they mean or how I can fix them.
error 1 - "ASB error 00 in cmd 0D"
error 2 - "kernel : tr0 : adapter error: ISRP_EVEN : 08 "
error 3 - "kernel : tr0 : error on xmit_ui_frame request: 00"
error 4 - "kernel : tr0 : Transmitter busy for more than 50 msec.
Donald resets adapter, but resetting the IBM tokenring adapter takes a
long time. It might not even help when the ring is very busy, so we
just wait a little longer and hope for the best."
This system is at a remote site and I have to call someone to have
them reboot the system to get it inserted into the ring again.
Is there any way reset the adapter without rebooting?
Can the time the adapter waits for a response be extended for longer
