Opened: Jul 30, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Running the nitrox_diag may not include Nitrox3 register values when gathering device diagnostic information from guest.

Impact

Not all available debugging information will be included for diagnosis. This makes investigating hardware-related issues involving Nitrox3 more difficult.

Conditions

This occurs when the host is running 11.6.x, when the guest is running 14.1.0.1, and when the guest runs nitrox_diag. Running nitrox_diag on the host still works. Running nitrox_diag in older guests still works.

Workaround

You can still run nitrox_diag, but it will not include register dumps. In some cases this is okay: the other information gathered by nitrox_diag may be sufficient to resolve issues under investigation.

Fix Information

None
