[lvs-users] LVS and Broadcom bug

Thank you for answer!

As far as I understand the bug is with LVS + Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme
II BCM57711E 10-Gigabit only. May be because of relatively new hardware. I
can reproduce it with different kernel versions and different physical

For a quick solution I replace one server in enclosure with previous model
HP ProLiant BL460c G5 Broadcom Corporation with NetXtreme II BCM5708S
Gigabit Ethernet by just replacing hard disks and error is gone.

As problem is only with LVS enabled Kernel I think that it is LVS specific
bug and should be fixed.

Regards, Aleksey

Don't have any information about your situation, but other 
people on this list don't seem to have much success with 
Broadcom NICs either. I have no idea what the problem is
