Numeric Error Code

Error messages are expressed as eight-digit decimal numbers, ZDDDEESZ, defined as follows. For example, an error number of 02762230 represents error number 22 (port 1 loopback failure) of the PeerMaster adapter in expansion slot 3.
Z = Always zero
DDD = The device number assigned to your PeerMaster adapter
EE = Diagnostic error number
S = Slot number
Z = Always zero

NetWare Run-Time Messages

It is possible that an irrecoverable, or recoverable, error might occur during normal operation of the adapter. The following table describes the run-time errors that might be displayed.

Recoverable Errors and Warnings

58: The board does not respond
Description:  To clear a detected run-time error, the driver has attempted to reset, reload, and reinitialize the adapter. These messages indicate that errors have occurred during the recovery process. This message does not indicate that the driver has terminated the recovery process. The driver will attempt to recover control of the adapter at periodic intervals. The driver will not redisplay the error message each time it attempts to recover from the error. If the driver is not able to recover from any of these errors after several minutes, call for service. 

110: Unable to download the firmware 
Description:  To clear a detected run-time error, the driver has attempted to reset, reload, and reinitialize the adapter. These messages indicate that errors have occurred during the recovery process. This message does not indicate that the driver has terminated the recovery process. The driver will attempt to recover control of the adapter at periodic intervals. The driver will not redisplay the error message each time it attempts to recover from the error. If the driver is not able to recover from any of these errors after several minutes, call for service. 

111: Invalid Pipe Command 
Description:  To clear a detected run-time error, the driver has attempted to reset, reload, and reinitialize the adapter. These messages indicate that errors have occurred during the recovery process. This message does not indicate that the driver has terminated the recovery process. The driver will attempt to recover control of the adapter at periodic intervals. The driver will not redisplay the error message each time it attempts to recover from the error. If the driver is not able to recover from any of these errors after several minutes, call for service. 

112: The board watchdog failed 
Description:  To clear a detected run-time error, the driver has attempted to reset, reload, and reinitialize the adapter. These messages indicate that errors have occurred during the recovery process. This message does not indicate that the driver has terminated the recovery process. The driver will attempt to recover control of the adapter at periodic intervals. The driver will
not redisplay the error message each time it attempts to recover from the error. If the driver is not able to recover from any of these errors after several minutes, call for service. 

113: Adapter resetting... please wait 
Description:  To clear a detected run-time error, the driver has attempted to reset, reload, and reinitialize the adapter. These messages indicate that errors have occurred during the recovery process. This message does not indicate that the driver has terminated the recovery process. The driver will attempt to recover control of the adapter at periodic intervals. The driver will not redisplay the error message each time it attempts to recover from the error. If the driver is not able to recover from any of these errors after several minutes, call for service. 

229: The adapter alert condition has been corrected
Description:  This indicates a successful recovery from one of the above run-time error conditions. 

388: Ethernet Media Port 1 Tx Carrier Sense Errors, check your cable
389: Ethernet Media Port 2 Tx Carrier Sense Errors, check your cable
390: Ethernet Media Port 3 Tx Carrier Sense Errors, check your cable
391: Ethernet Media Port 4 Tx Carrier Sense Errors, check your cable
Description:  Check your cables, adapter cables, or concentrator. 

395: Ethernet Media Port 1 Tx Carrier Sense Errors corrected
396: Ethernet Media Port 2 Tx Carrier Sense Errors corrected
397: Ethernet Media Port 3 Tx Carrier Sense Errors corrected
398: Ethernet Media Port 4 Tx Carrier Sense Errors corrected
Description:  Problem is solved. 

Irrecoverable Errors
   If you receive an error that is not described in the preceding error-message lists, you might have an irrecoverable (fatal) error. The error message indicates that the adapter has experienced an
irrecoverable run-time error. 

   To make the adapter functional, unload the drivers, then reload them. If unloading and reloading the drivers does not make the adapter functional, restart the computer and try again.
   If the above procedures do not work, or if the message occurs again, record the error number and message string and call for service.
