Bad FCS in Sync messages

Dear Experts,

The FCS of gPTP sync messages sent by Extreme Networks AVB Switch Summit x440-24t is marked in Wireshark as bad.
I have the following firmware on my switch:
* X440-24t.4 # show version
Switch : 800471-00-12 1407N-41055 Rev 12.0 BootROM: IMG:
PSU-1 : Internal Power Supply
PSU-2 :

Image : ExtremeXOS version v1541b3-patch1-12 by release-manager
on Sat May 3 12:30:21 EDT 2014
BootROM :
Diagnostics : 6.3

Is there a fix for this issue?

Best regards,
Jakub Mielczarek

I do not think the packets actually have a bad FCS. This could be related to how they are being captured or a Wireshark issue.

How are you capturing the traffic and what version of Wireshark are you using?
