N5K err-disabled a port due to DCX-No ACK in 100 PDUs

I'm super new to Nexus, so I'm not really sure how to troubleshoot this. I did a quick search and found that this is related to DCBX TLVs in LLDP, which we apparently shouldn't be getting on a regular ethernet port. I'm pretty sure this is just a regular ethernet port. (Like I said, I'm pretty new to nexus. lol)  I wonder if the following output indicates that we are receiving and sending DCBX TLVs in LLDP. If so, it sounds like the interface will go into err-disable state if the server stops sending ACK frames.

# show lldp dcbx int e1/17

This is the first time we've run into this. Any idea what might really be going on?

Thanks!

Hi,

Please investigate/verify the Server CNA, i.e. drivers, Compatibility with Server OS version.

If this is recurring, as a temporary workaround you can disable LLDP on interface that connects to Server.

no lldp transmit

no lldp receive

Isn't a CNA for FC or FCoE? Can they do regular Ethernet, too? I thought that a CNA was only for FC or FCoE. I verified that we're not doing FC or FCoE on these Nexus switches. I'll have the server owners check into it.

Thanks!

Hi,

Per the display it  the Server Adapter is doing LLDP DCBX negotiation.

If not needed, then you might want to check the Server adapter settings.

DCBX is an extension of LLDP link layer discovery protocol; not restricted for FCOE usage.

Further informatin on LLDP for Nexus:

Thanks!

Thanks! That's very helpful information. I'll have the server owners check into that setting. I suspect we'll probably just disable LLDP since we don't really need it on any of these interfaces.

I appreciate the help!
