Re: Problems with isrp_even message on token ring RH 5.0

This seems to match what is happening... 

The adapter does seem to insert into the ring, and it does work.. but
give the error messages about ever 15 seconds or so after the adapter is
brought up.. 

Is there anything I can look at which may give you an indication as to what
the problem is? Additional debug info?



In your message you said:
