Receive over errors - dropped packets

Having an issue with pretty much all of our new HPE Synergy hosts dropping packets.  When I look at the nic stats I see "Receive over error" counts that match the packets dropped count.  I'm struggling to find a clear explanation of what exactly that metric is though.  Anyone have an idea?

esxcli network nic stats get -n vmnic3

We got the same on our Simplivites.

Have you found out what's the problem?

Hi

No, we had a long case running with vmware.
After several hours they sad, it would be a software glitch and we have to upgrade our ESX to 7.
We'll update our ESX in two weeks and then look again.

But I don't think it will fix the problem.

We'll see
