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?

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.
