These messages indicate possible internal forwarding path issues within the Virtual Chassis system. Possible causes could be a bad VC cable or port.

Perform these steps to determine the cause and resolve the problem (if any):

1. Collect the show command output to help determine the cause of this message.

Capture the output to a file (in case you have to open a technical support case). To do this, configure each SSH client/terminal emulator to log your session.
