It's TSR# 453418.

I don't send copies of the files around. They are property of WRS. It is Martin.Niedermair@windriver.com who sent them to SLS. Unfortunately, he didn't add a revision number to the files when he changed them recently. So, the latest revision entries in the files are
dec21x40End.h 22sep03,mni added BOOL restarting member to DEC21X40_DRV_CTRL structure


dec21x40End.c 22sep03,mni added fix for SPR# 84658

Please check with Mr Niedermair if he did essential changes since.

Kind regards,
Andy

Hello All,

Since I posted 2 e-mails in July 2005 seeking for help, I thought it would
be worth informing you that the problem could be solved.


There are indeed some bugs in Wind River's N/W driver (dec21x40End.h/c) that
cause the misbehavior of the IOC. I got new revisions of these files from
Martin Niedermair, WRS Austria, which solve the issue. Strangely enough, a
different support engineer of WRS sent me another revision of the same
files, which doesn't fix the bug. About 2 years back, they were branched...
. The latest official patch from WRS contains again different revisions of
the files.


Thus, if you are experiencing troubles with IOC's disconnecting for 'no
reasons', or reset ports of N/W switches to regain links to IOC's, build a
new VxWorks image with the latest revision of these files.
Can you send us a copy of the files or give us a rev. number to compare
against?

I think we are fine but I want to double-check.

Our MVME2101s also use the "dec21x40End.h/c"


PS: Did WRS give you a TSR or SPR that we could look up on our end?
