I'm curios, is this critical?
Is it a HBA error?

Thank you!

This is a temporary error, so it's by definition "non-critical".

fcstat doesn't show errors, so there's no reason to get worried.

You could update your driver "devices.pciex.df1000fe.rte" anyway, but since IBM doesn't ship single updates anymore this means a TL Upgrade.

Also, the adapter microcode might be a bit outdated.

271315 is the newest available level. You can get it from Fix Central, and here are the instructions:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/software/server/firmware/jack2-port.html

Check which level you're on with

lsmcode -d fcs0
