Error description

  • If a VIO client ends up in the situation where it is
    processing a reset ring it will attempt to free the CRQ
    and then register it again.
    
    If the partner VIOS is not up when this occurs the client
    adapter will go into error state and never recover.
    

Local fix

  • Remove virtual FC adapter with rmdev and run cfgmgr

    processing a reset ring it will attempt to free the CRQ
    and then register it again.

    adapter will go into error state and never recover.
